Chornobyldorf – Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival

'Chornobyldorf is a breathtaking portrait of humanity’s need for spiritual and cultural sustenance in the wake of shattering global events. It was co-composed and directed by Ukraine’s Illia Razumeiko and Roman Grygoriv before the Russian invasion. Bravo to Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival for bringing the whole Ukrainian cast and company of Opera Aperta to the UK during the conflict, to share their extraordinary creation.'
