Opera North presents Foaie Verde
Violinist Joe Townsend, award-winning photographer Dominick Tyler and Romanian singer Dana Codorean-Berciu join forces with the musicians of Opera North to create an extraordinary musical and visual journey across Romania. Foaie Verde is a journey into the doina – the lyrical song form of Transylvania which expresses melancholy and eroticism as well as the hardships of peasant life. Rhythmically free, highly improvised and oriental in harmony, the doina occupies a similar place to that held by the Blues in the USA.
