We are delighted that Tansy Davies has won a British Composer Award in the stage works category for her opera Between Worlds which was performed at the Barbican in April 2015. Commissioned by ENO with a libretto by Nick Drake and directed by Deborah Warner, it was a sensitive and spiritual work inspired by the events of 9/11.
The winners were announced last night at a ceremony at BFI Southbank hosted by BBC Radio 3 presenters Sarah Walker and Andrew McGregor.
BBC Radio 3 will broadcast a programme dedicated to the ceremony on Hear and Now at 10pm on 10 December.
