The Seckerson Tapes: Composer Dario Marianelli

Oscar-winning composer talks about writing a musical of The Glass Menagerie

Composer Dario Marianelli wields his Oscar for his score to the film 'Atonement'
Dario Marianelli won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his score for the movie Atonement, and his return to the theatre after a long absence as composer for the Young Vic's new production of Tennessee Williams's first big Broadway success, The Glass Menagerie, is hotly anticipated. In the rehearsal room he talks about the intricate process that marries music to drama, be it on celluloid or stage. He talks about what fires his imagination and how, for instance, a typewriter (in Atonement) or a piano (in Pride and Prejudice) might unlock the colour and character of a score.
