A new company for anyone aged 40+ with an enthusiasm to explore classic and contemporary plays on their feet.
Join us for a pirate, pussycat and rat-packed panto party.
Written in 1939-41, A Child of our Time was inspired by Tippett’s outrage at the persecution of the Jews by the Nazis in World War 2 and is based on the true story of a young Polish Jewish refugee. But it also speaks for the persecuted and displaced in any age, as echoed by its famous settings of five negro spirituals from the time of black slavery in the US, andits exploration of oppression, captivity and flight resonates today as much asin the past.
This concert also features Beethoven’s ever-popular Violin Concerto.
