Orlando: The Adventurer – Song and Guitar

23 May @ 7:30 pm 9:30 pm

Orlando: The Adventurer - Song and Guitar

Ema Nikolovaska, mezzo soprano

Sean Shibe, guitar

In this concert all stereotypes of the traditional song recital are avoided while exploring Virginia Woolf’s Orlando – a time-travelling adventure transcending place, period and gender. Expectations will be subverted with new works for electronics; songwriters Laurie Anderson and Bob Dylan placed alongside Dowland and Schubert.

Nikolovska and Shibe are former BBC New Generation Artists and Borletti-Buitoni Trust recipients. This season Nikolovska made her Royal Opera House debut with the lead role in the UK premiere of Sir George Benjamin’s Picture a Day Like This and Shibe was nominated for a Grammy Award.

Kind Sponsored by William and Wera Hobhouse, and Jimmy and Hiroko Sherwin.
