Benjamin Britten and William Plomer’s synthesis of a Noh play and Christian parable set in medieval East Anglia is a unique and extraordinary work – a piece shot through with the strange, exotic sounds of bells, un-tuned drums, organ and chamber ensemble. Curlew River sweeps audiences into a fascinating, unknown world portraying both Buddhist world views and Christian redemption beliefs.

Celebrated tenor Ian Bostridge heads a starry cast to reprise his acclaimed interpretation of the Madwoman. The cast also includes bass-baritone Ashley Riches as the Ferryman, alongside Britten Sinfonia and the orchestra’s professional choir, Britten Sinfonia Voices, directed by Eamonn Dougan.
