When art, culture, and Roger Collide

(Thanks Roger O'Donnell Discography)

Update (Nov. 12th, 2016): You can read the full interview at Collide, but here's an excerpt:

Whilst busy with his touring commitments to The Cure for the foreseeable future, O’Donnell has a number of other projects and collaborations percolating and waiting to unfurl once his weary bones find their way back home.

“I have several projects that I am working on at the moment but which are, for the most part, on hold whilst I tour with The Cure. I’m producing a classical ballet with Les Saisons Russe in Moscow based on the Oscar Wilde story ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. We have been working on this for a few years now and it’s a rather large project to say the least!” he laughs.

"I have another piece for piano and string quartet based on a Ted Hughes poem, 'The Crow Falls', which will be choreographed for the prima ballerina Veronika Part. We’ll be performing that next March in New York at the invitation of Philip Glass at Carnegie Hall. It's a very big project and a lot of work, but I'm incredibly proud of it". (Thanks Andi)



  2. Very cool obviously if the cure are simply a touring and festival gig machine then Roger needs other outlets for his creative input
