Geoffrey Davidson’s Middleham Requiem 26 March 2015 – Adam Green as Richard III

Thursday 26 March - Leicester

Reburial of King Richard III in Leicester Cathedral. This will be broadcast live on Channel 4.
King Richard will be reinterred in the Cathedral in the presence of the Most Rev and Rt Hon the Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. There will be screens set up in the Cathedral gardens.
In the evening the Richard III Society is organising a performance of Geoffrey Davidson's Middleham Requiem at the church of St James the Greater, London Road, Leicester, with a 21-piece orchestra, a choir of 50, 12 choristers, three soloists and a narrator. This will be only the fourth but the most poignant performance of this unique work which premiered at Fotheringhay church in 1993. We are pleased to announce that the narrator for the Leicester performance of the requiem will be Sir Timothy Ackroyd, the actor, writer and director.

Tycho’s Dream – Glyndebourne

Very pleased to be playing the title role of Tycho Brahe in the following production at Glyndebourne:

http://glyndebourne.com/production/tychos-dream

Spanning 1500 years and 238,900 miles, Tycho's Dream is a science fiction adventure composed by Luke Styles, written by Peter Cant and performed by Glyndebourne's Youth Opera and two professional singers.

Beginning with the discovery of a new star which is destined to change the perception of the heavens forever, Tycho's Dream transports us from Tycho Brahe's 16th century Denmark to an imagined future where the innocent hands of children are used to mine moon rocks in the search for the first word.

In six distinct episodes, Tycho's Dream crosses time and space to explore a future set in motion by Tycho's discovery, a future he could never have imagined: where a space elevator connects the Earth and the Moon, where children don't age, and speaking is banned.

Don't be afraid! Don't look away! Don't hide your eyes! It's here!

Tycho's Dream is a new commission created especially for the Youth Opera company and emerging directly from a development week where a group of young people let their ideas about the future go wild.
