Pierrot Lunaire

14 October 2017, 10:00pm 30 May 2024 - 7:17am

Members of the dynamic and award-winning Shadwell Opera company perform Schoenberg's ground-breaking Pierrot Lunaire, one of the seminal works of the early twentieth century. This epic monodrama for solo voice and five instrumentalists is ideally suited to an evocative late-night performance in New College Ante-Chapel. Rising star soprano Alice Privett, recently hailed by the Guardian as 'ardent and powerful', performs the solo part. The ensemble is conducted by Finnegan Downie-Dear, a former Oxford Lieder Young Artist and increasingly acclaimed pianist and conductor, who has assisted on Thomas Adès's The Exterminating Angel in Salzburg and at the Royal Opera House.
