'Why does the Queen die?': a new play by Iain Burnside

17 October 2014, 7:00pm - 8:10pm

Presented in association with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama


Schubert's circle of friends in Vienna included more writers and artists than musicians. His songs are inextricably connected both to these friendships and the city where they flourished. This music theatre piece, the latest in a series of experimental shows developed by Iain Burnside with the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, exlpores these connections.

This is the final performance of 'Why does the Queen Die?'. See 15th (5pm & 8pm) and 16th (8pm ) for other performances.
