Hearing Voices

Fri 5 April 2024, 7:30pm,
The Stoller Hall

We invite you to immerse yourself in a powerful and moving experience for your eyes and ears. 

Hearing Voices explores the work and memory of those before us, told dramatically by three powerful voices. Manchester Camerata – Kantos Chamber Choir and Karen Cargill. 

From Purcell to Part, with Britten’s Phaedra as a centrepiece, the evening will tell the story of obsession, forbidden love and death. 

Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill is one of the most renowned singers of her generation. Winner of the 2002 Kathleen Ferrier Award, Karen has gone on to be nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Operatic Recording as part of the Metropolitan Opera’s recording of Dialogues des Carmélites.

Tickets from £15 – £25 + Booking fee.

Best seats in the house are available at £10 for under 30s (limited availability), £3 for Gorton Residents, £5 for Students + Booking fee.
