Classical Weekend: a success!

Leave a comment

We are the other side (just!) of a very successful Classical Weekend in Sheffield, which saw the premiere of my new mini-opera Madam Adam performed by Opera on Location, the second performance of my revised Hooting, not Drinking performed by Rachel Shirley (flute) & Platform 4 with members of Sheffield Flute Choir (blown bottles & flutes ensemble), and the premiere of Kraal for massed voices.

You can see a video of both Madam Adam (and the other three Platform 4 mini-operas), and Kraal on the Platform 4 YouTube channel:

Here are a couple of ‘action’ photos of Kraal…!


Next up: Focus Pull for string quartet on May 8th 12.45 Crucible Theatre Studio, Sheffield (Ensemble 360), commissioned by Music in the Round for the 2017 May Festival: Russia in the Round.
