Tales and legends | the tempest
9th June | Durham town hall


Join us for a musical telling of some of the greatest tales and legends ever penned. We begin in the present, with Takashi Yoshimatsu’s White Landscapes, an idyllic portrayal of snow to put you into a state of tranquillity. We follow this with Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande (including the famous Sicilienne), a musical depiction of Maurice Maeterlinck’s play of mystery, love, and jealousy. After the interval we continue the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of Shakespeare’s first folio with Sibelius’ Tempest Suite No.2, a musical retelling of Shakespeare’s story of magic, betrayal, love, and forgiveness. We conclude our storytelling with the intoxicating folk dances of Kodaly’s Dances of Galánta, guaranteed to leave you dancing your way out of Durham Town Hall.
