Bow Down

1 Jan 2012

Sir Harrison Birtwistle composer
Tony Harrison libretto

A macabre folktale is brought to percussive and visceral life in this interdisciplinary performance. When The Fair Sister is courted by The Suitor, The Dark Sister commits a terrible act of betrayal. But as her crime echoes through the land and across the ages will she finally receive retribution? Bow Down is an ancient murder ballad reimagined by young performers and players from the London Sinfonietta Academy. 

In association with London Sinfonietta
