  • Ugly Duck (47/49 Tanner Street) 47-49 Tanner Street London, England, SE1 United Kingdom (map)

An evening of collaboration, featuring works by Arvo Pärt, Frank Martin and Henry Purcell.

Pärt’s Magnificat and The Woman with the Alabaster Box are illuminated by bespoke lighting design, transforming aural colours into stunning visuals.

Martin’s Five Songs of Ariel are embodied by Paris-based mime artist Jason Ribes, who transforms the role of Shakespeare’s supernatural spirit into something rich and strange.

Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas is rescored with electronic music by producer and DJ Nico Bentley and the Pencil Collective.

Dido: Angharad Lyddon
Aeneas: Oskar McCarthy
Belinda: Nia Coleman

Music Director: Greg Batsleer
