The Opera Group's production of Babur in London tours the UK from June to July.

Director John Fulljames, composer Edward Rushton and librettist Jeet Thayil discuss the origins of Babur in London.

Babur in London tells a haunting story of four young people in today's society grappling with their beliefs, the consequences of their actions, and their feelings for each other.

In a London suburb, four young men and women are preparing a terrorist act. As their mission draws closer they are disturbed by the ghost of Babur, first Mughal Emperor -poet and warrior. Challenging their convictions, he calls them 'children playing in battle, in love with death', but what are his motives for interfering?
