Benjamin Britten’s song cycle Les Illuminations sets poems by the 19th century French bad-boy poet Arthur Rimbaud. Rimbaud wrote his prose poems in London, while Britten finished his song cycle in America. Taking as his starting point both songs and journeys, Iain Burnside explores two very different creative personalities, working at key moments in their lives. This new play spans two centuries and three continents. Following the success of A Soldier and a Maker, Burnside again fuses text, music and movement in a new genre of music theatre he has made his own. Journeying Boys has been developed in association with the Royal College of Music.

Suitable for ages 16+
