East West Street: A Song of Good and Evil is an acclaimed piece inspired by human rights lawyer Philippe Sands prize-winning book East West Street, which explores the origins of genocide and crimes against humanity.

Focussing on the remarkable, connected stories of his grandfather and three key individuals in the Nuremberg Trials – Cambridge academic Hersch Lauterpacht, Polish prosecutor Raphael Lemkin, and Hitler’s lawyer Hans Frank – the performance is based on the words, images and music that connected the men, from Bach and Beethoven, to Rachmaninov and Leonard Cohen.

This extraordinary work is narrated by Sands and award-winning German actress Katja Riemann, accompanied by leading bass-baritone Laurent Naouri and renowned jazz pianist Guillaume de Chassy and is directed by one of Britain’s leading young opera directors, Nina Brazier.
