Damon and Jamie's new work for MIF 2011 and London 2012 Festival

London 2012 OlympicsDamon Albarn has collaborated with Jamie Hewlett and theatre director Rufus Norris to work on a production which will premiere at Manchester International Festival 2011. The production, which is supposedly an opera based on the life of John Dee, is co-commissioned with English National Opera and London 2012 Festival.

In the summer of 2012, the same work will be part of the London 2012 Festival which consists of over 1,000 events celebrating the Olympic Games. Africa Express is also part of the festival; 'the express' will travel through the UK in September 2012 (more details on the Africa Express [link down] website).

Full details about Damon, Jamie and Rufus' project will be revealed at the Manchester International Festival programme launch in March 2011.
