Curlew River

Summary

Benjamin Britten and William Polmer’s synthesis of a Noh Play and Christian parable set in medieval East Anglia is a unique and extraordinary work – a piece shot through with the strange, excoic sounds of bells, un-tuned drums, organ and chamber ensemble. This performance is directed by Netia Jones and features tenor Ian Bostridge alongside Britten Sinfonia and Britten Sinfonia Voices.

A co-production by the Barbican, London, Cal Performances, Lincoln Centre for the Performing Arts, New York and Carolina Performing Arts.
