Schoenberg - Pierrot Lunaire
The wild, seductive chords of Schoenberg’s masterpiece have intrigued and confounded audiences for over 100 years. This season, Manchester Collective brings this sensual and dangerous world to life, performed in English, in a new translation by David Pountney.
Polly Graham directs this visceral staged production, delving deep into the inner world of the unnamed female protagonist. Acclaimed Australian soprano Lotte Betts-Dean paints a vivid picture of a woman on the edge - inspiration, struggle, ambition, and self-doubt.
Pierrot Lunaire is presented by NTS/BBC Radio 6 broadcaster Elizabeth Alker, who will guide audiences though the emotional wreckage of this musical apocalypse.
