John Adams lends his music to 'I Am Love,' starring Tilda Swinton
Raphaela Papadakis seems to like ‘playing with fire’. After her acclaimed performance as the put-upon maid, Anna, in Independent Opera’s production of Šimon Voseček’s Beidermann and the Arsonists at Sadler’s Wells last year, she is currently rehearsing for the premiere this week of And London Burned, a new opera by Matt Rogers which has been commissioned by Temple Music Foundation to commemorate the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London.

From its pianissimo opening sequence to the thundering crescendo of its final moments, "I Am Love" is a movie awash in the music of John Adams.
