BPM commissions James Lark to write “The Death of Dr Kelly”

Ensemble BPM has commissioned award-winning composer James Lark, Director of Music at Westminster Abbey School, to create a major new work based on the events surrounding the death of Dr David Kelly in 2003.

The Death of Dr Kelly will use a company of singers, chamber orchestra, live and pre-recorded film and sampling audio, within the framework of a fully-staged narrative, to tell the true story of the events surrounding the death of British weapons expert David Kelly in 2003. It will combine the strongest aspects of operatic tradition and theatrical staging with the benefits of modern technologies to create an integrated piece of ‘total theatre’ that tells the story in the richest, most objective way possible.

The work will integrate iconic BBC / Parliament-licensed footage alongside new interviews with key characters from the events themselves.
