Memorial Hall, 208 East Cameron Avenue, Chapel Hill, NC 27514


Tenor Ian Bostridge returns to Memorial Hall with a British cast alongside the Britten Sinfonia and Britten Sinfonia Voices in composer Benjamin Britten’s church parable Curlew River. Inspired by the ritualized drama of Japanese Noh theater, Britten explores themes of community, suffering, and redemption in an encounter between Japanese aesthetic and medieval mystery play, the whole shot through with mysterious and exotic music.
