New score for Pandora's Box playing in the UK

A new score for Pandora's Box (1929), starring Louise Brooks, has been written by composer Jóhann Jóhannsson and cellist and composer Hildur Gudnadóttir (from the Icelandic band Múm). They will stage their score live during screenings in the UK, together with clarinettist and graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music Dov Goldberg, and experimental turntable artist Philip Jeck, whose distinctive sound is created by mixing, looping and layering extracts from old vinyl records.


Pandora's Box will be performed in Manchester, Leeds, Coventry and London through November 3. The screenings and newly commissioned score is part of an Opera North Projects, an element of Opera North which brings classical and contemporary arts together in a year-round program of performance.
