A new play written and directed by Iain Burnside, featuring singers and pianists from the Guildhall School.
This music theatre piece is the latest in a series of experimental shows developed by Iain Burnside with the Guildhall School, and comes to Milton Court following its successful premiere at the Oxford Lieder Festival.
Schubert’s circle of friends in Vienna included more writers and artists than musicians. His songs are inextricably connected both to these friendships and the city where they flourished. In Why does the Queen die? Iain Burnside unravels some of these connections through his trademark combination of music and drama.
