Recipient of the Hollywood Film Festival's first Outstanding Music in Film Visionary Award, a Grammy nominee for his 2005 CD "Orchestralli," and a 2003 inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Stewart Copeland — the former drummer and founder of The Police — has been responsible for some of the film world's most innovative and groundbreaking scores. His career includes the sale of more than 60 million records worldwide, and numerous awards, including five Grammy awards.


Copeland's most recent concert work is Gamelan D'Drum, commissioned and premiered by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra in February 2011 with the world percussion group D'Drum as soloists. Other works include the ballets Lear for the San Francisco Ballet (choreographed by Victoria Morgan) and Prey for Ballet Oklahoma; Arise Awake for chorus and orchestra for the Brighton Festival; the opera Holy Blood and Crescent Moon for the Cleveland Opera, Horse Opera for Channel Four, and the chamber opera The Cask of Amontillado (after Edgar Allan Poe's timeless tale). London's ROH2 commissioned and premiered Copeland's second Poe chamber opera, The Tell-Tale Heart, as part of its Opera Shots series in April 2011.
