A free live performance and video screening at Fed Square

love fail

by David Lang

Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winner and Oscar nominee DAVID LANG was inspired by one of the greatest love stories ever told.

“I thought I might learn something about love if I could explore this in a piece, putting details abstracted from many different retellings of Tristan and Isolde next to texts that are more modern, more recognisable to us, more real"

Four beautiful live voices with simple, haunting percussion, combined with the screening of video footage captured in upstate New York - FED SQUARE becomes a contemporary music-film-opera oasis for everyone on a Melbournesummer night.

Artistic Director Linda Thompson

Video Director Luke Leonard

Music Director Patrick Burns

"With its mix of simplicity and complexity, love fail is both haunting and thought-provoking." - Grammophone
