An Index of Metals was written by the Italian composer Fausto Romitelli (1963-2004) in the space of 50 days at a rate of fifteen hours a day, in the year before his death. This incandescent requiem is a combination of opera-video and immersive theatre experience, with its echos of hard rock, Pink Floyd and psychedelic rock. The musicians belonging to the Ensemble Miroirs Étendus and the director Aliénor Dauchez have created a new version of this extraordinary masterpiece, the work of a foremost composer on the modern scene.
