Iain Burnside writer/director

Claire Barnett-Jones Mezzo Soprano

A return for Iain Burnside’s music-theatre piece: Schubert’s 14 Schwanengesang songs are presented interspersed with monologues from 6 characters, real and imagined. Each casts fresh light from a different angle on this collection of masterly songs, and on the genius who created them, months before his death. A collaboration between Guildhall actors, singers and pianists.
