Max Richter new Opera ‘SUM’ Opens in London next week

Max Richter has colloborated with the Royal Ballet's Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor to create a fascinating new chamber opera for the Linbury Studio Theatre. The piece is based on the bestselling novel Sum: Forty Tales From the Afterlives by David Eagleman and is directed by McGregor.

The result is an intriguing vision of a possible journey after death, populated by computers, suburban anterooms and mind-strecthing scenarios that incorporates film, music and performance. Through this use of different mediums, SUM explores an interactive audience experience and takes opera to a whole new level of existence.
