The Sequel – With Manchester Literature Festival
Date: Friday 23rd October 2015 19:30
Venue: Manchester Cathedral, Manchester
Following a sell-out concert in 2014, rock star accordionist Martynas Levickis joins Camerata for this year&s collaboration with Manchester Literature Festival. Philip Glass’ String Quartet no.2 was originally written to accompany a 1984 staged version of Samuel Beckett’s Company. Opening with the words, ‘A voice comes to one in the dark. Imagine…’, Company is a soliloquy in which a man, presumably at the end of his life, hears a voice from his past and comes to terms with a profound solitude. Experience Glass’ atmospheric score performed alongside the spine-tingling narration from Royal Shakespeare Company actor David Fielder.
Infusion bars provide a pop-up bar in the chapel pre-concert from 6.30pm and during the interval.
DOORS OPEN: 6.30pm
