Calixto Bieito & The Heath Quartet

The String Quartet’s Guide to Sex and Anxiety

Brighton Festival Co-Commission

The tempestuous relationship between sex, anxiety and music comes to a head in this remarkable new production from Calixto Bieito, one of Europe’s most exciting theatre-makers. Known for his radical interpretation of classic operas, the Spanish director has been compared to the likes of Quentin Tarantino and Pedro Almodóvar for his singular style.

Music and drama collide as the award-winning string powerhouse The Heath Quartet performs alongside an equally stunning quartet of actors to deliver an unmissable montage of melody and madness. Together, the eight artists will take you on a journey through time to explore how our innermost thoughts battle with our artistic impulses.

Every generation has its own affliction. This show may not have the cure, but you’re sure to feel better for having seen it.
