FOLLOWING THE RECENT GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19), THE BEOWULF PERFORMANCE AT THE OCTAGON THEATRE WILL BE POSTPONED, THE RESCHEDULED PERFORMANCE WILL TAKE PLACE ON 30 JUNE 2021.
UNFORTUNATELY BOTH THE LLANDEILO FAWR FESTIVAL OF MUSIC & LICHFIELD FESTIVAL WILL NO LONGER BE GOING AHEAD THIS YEAR. WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE THESE BEOWULF PERFORMANCES IN THE 2021 SUMMER TERM.
Join Armonico Consort in the retelling of Beowulf, one of the world’s greatest mythical tales, in an evening of musical entertainment. Discover a legendary time of heroes and warriors as Prince Beowulf battles demons and magical beasts. Featuring a gripping script from one of the authors of Have I Got News For You, this touching epic saga has been set to music by Armonico Consort’s composer-in-residence, Toby Young (former BBC Proms Young Composer of the Year).
The voices of hundreds of local children from our AC Academy choir creation scheme will be joined by Armonico Consort’s five star awarded choir; solo Soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, who sang at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May 2018; solo harpist, and former harpist to HRH Prince of Wales, Anne Denholm; and composer Toby Young on keyboards. Beowulf guarantees to excite the whole family and is the perfect introduction to the breathtaking excitement of live music.
