The Festival is thrilled to welcome back Frances M
Lynch with an exciting series of new work:
Eduardo Reck Miranda: Requiem per una veu
perduda - a series of epitaphs by Robert Burns, set in a
Requiem Mass by this acclaimed Brazilian composer. A
beautiful work which echoes with the sounds of lost
Paul Barker: Three Lullabies - No.3 is a world première.
Alejandro Viñao: The Baghdad Monologue - the centre of the Middle East conflict as portrayed through a woman’s eyes and the infamous words of Bush, Blair and co.
Using cutting-edge sound technology, live processing and surround sound space manipulation, the vocal agility of the soloist is enhanced to create a rich tapestry of sound.
This is electrifying, mystical and devastating vocal
theatre. A stunning production
set in the surroundings of a
wonderful new theatre and a
great way to start the festival.
