Dr Edward Venn (University of Leeds): ‘Mysterious Things’: Interpreting Adès’s Operas

Thomas Adès has drawn attention to the ‘mysterious thing that happens when you set actions to music: a third shape that emerges when something non-visual like a musical score is acted out by people moving on a stage’. Using such ‘mysterious things’ as a point of departure, this paper suggests ways of thinking about and through Adès’s operas, with a focus on their realisation in performance.
