Divided into four acts, lasting well over two hours, featuring five singers and scored for a large ensemble (effectively an expanded version of the Michael Nyman Band), it comes close to "grand" opera in design, which perhaps explains why the work has been overshadowed by the composer's more approachable chamber operas.]]> Fri, 05 Aug 2011 00:00:00 +0000 Composer Michael Nyman settles an old score | The Independent http://www.michaelnyman.com/inspiration/post/composer-michael-nyman-settles-an-old-score-the-independent The Independent Source: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/composer-michael-nyman-settles-an-old-score-2313618.html]]> Fri, 15 Jul 2011 00:00:00 +0000 Long Beach Opera to present works by Michael Nyman, Osvaldo Golijov | LA Times http://www.michaelnyman.com/inspiration/post/long-beach-opera-to-present-works-by-michael-nyman-osvaldo-golijov-la-times Wed, 13 Jul 2011 00:00:00 +0000 On Landguard Point: East Anglia's Cultural Olympiad | BBC News http://www.michaelnyman.com/inspiration/post/on-landguard-point-east-anglias-cultural-olympiad-bbc-news Prehistoric seas People are also being asked to dig up a square metre of their gardens. The Dig & Sow part of the project will register 205 sites. Ms Lewis, director of Access Cambridge Archaeology, said: "I grew up [near Bungay] looking for fossils of the animals that lived in the prehistoric seas of East Anglia. "We'll have archaeologists on-call if people ring up and say 'Help, I've got a Sutton Hoo ship burial, what should I do next?' "It's amazing what turns up because, before about 50 years ago, rubbish wasn't taken away, it was just put out the back." The project is funded by the Arts Council and Helen Lax, its regional director, said: "We're hoping there will be a legacy after the Olympics that people have got involved, participated, volunteered or seen really great art. "[Art and sport] are the two things that fire people up and there's a misconception that you either like sport or you like art - people like both. "We're really good at the arts in this country, so the Cultural Olympiad is a chance to celebrate our cultural heritage with the rest of the world." Michael Nyman's concert takes place at Felixstowe's Spa Pavilion on Friday, 23 September, 2011 and it features three sound commissions including the world premiere of a piece called On Landguard Point.
