BENJAMIN BRITTEN'S CURLEW RIVER AT SOUTHWARK CATHEDRAL
Tuesday 22 August
Curlew River is the first of Britten's church parables.
Based on the Japanese Noh play, Sumidagawa, and transformed
into a mystery play, it tells the haunting yet moving story
of a mother's search for her lost son across the Medižval
Fenlands East Anglia.
It will be the only London performance in a tour of four
medieval churches by Mahogany Opera who specialise in
performing in unique venues appropriate for each production.
The artistic director is Frederic Wake Walker. Curlew River
was first heard at Orford in 1964 but had its London
premiere at Southwark Cathedral, a church favoured by
Britten.
