Beowulf

Armonico Consort & AC Academy Singers: 10/10/2017 - 13/10/2017

In a legendary time of heroes and warriors, prince Beowulf battles demons and magical beasts.

The oldest surviving poem in Old English, Beowulf is a fantasy saga which has inspired countless retellings of the myth, including Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Having formerly worked with the likes of Duran Duran and The Rolling Stones, Armonico Consort’s composer-in-residence Toby Young has set this touching epic drama to music.

We are thrilled to be joined by Mark Williams, better known for his roles as Mr Arthur Weasley in the Harry Potter movies, Doctor Who and Father Brown for BBC TV.

With strong folk-pop influences, a libretto by JR Thorp, and a gripping script from Danny Coleman-Cooke (writer for the Olivier Awards, Channel 4 and Have I Got News for You), Beowulf will entertain the whole family.
