Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour: The Doll Behind the Curtain

The Doll Behind the Curtain is the first Iranian opera with an English libretto. A haunting story of an Iranian student’s all-consuming obsession with a beautiful shop mannequin, it explores the dissonance, both musical and cultural, between East and West and tradition and modernity. Brunel PhD composition student, Amir Mahyar Tafreshipour, has written an innovative, psychological work of musical theatre.
