Harrison Birtwistle Bow Down
Presented by The Opera Group, in association with the London Sinfonietta.
A macabre folktale is brought to percussive and visceral life in this interdisciplinary performance. When The Fair Sister is courted by The Suitor, The Dark Sister commits a terrible act of betrayal. But as her crime echoes through the land and across the ages will she finally receive retribution?
Bow Down is an ancient murder ballad reimagined by young performers and players.
A repeat performance will take place at the festival on Saturday 14 July. Times for both performances are tbc.
