La Passion de Simone
A stage work by Kaija Saariaho based on the life of philosopher Simone Weil. Devoting her life to the poor and oppressed, Weil was driven to personal tragedy by her political action. She died as a result of a hunger strike during the Second World War, out of sympathy for the suffering Frenchmen. Peter Sellars conducts the Finnish premiere and Esa-Pekka Salonen the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
