Moscow-born and London-based composer Elena Langer has written operas, orchestral works, chamber pieces, and choral compositions. In 2009, her opera The Present was performed at OpernHaus Zürich, where it received the Audience Prize. Elena’s multimedia work Give Me Your Blessing—for the Dmitri Pokrovsky Ensemble, opera singer, and ballet dancers—was performed at the Royal Opera House, and her mini-opera Ariadne at the Tanglewood Music Center. For The Opera Group, Elena is currently working on The Lion’s Face, a full-length opera that will be premiered in May 2010 at the Brighton Festival and tour around the UK, with the last four performances at the Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House.
