In this latest opera podcast, Edward Seckerson talks to La Fura dels Baus director Valentina Carrasco, conductor Baldur Brönnimann and production manager Nicholas Sperling about English National Opera’s new production of Le Grand Macabre.

La Fura dels Baus, the Catalan ‘total theatre’ company that famously created the Barcelona Olympics opening ceremony, makes its ENO debut with a production of György Ligeti's intensely dark comic masterpiece.

Le Grand Macabre opens on 17 September 2009 and runs in rep, for six performances only, until 9 October. For more information, visit www.eno.org.
