Casa Da Musica Porto
December/ January, 2013
Conductor: Laurence Cummings
Orchestra and chorus of Casa Da Musica featuring 4 international soloists.
A staging of this sacred work, focussing on the everyman story of the journey from birth, through childish play and discovery, adult awakening, love and betrayal to forgiveness and finally redemption, rebirth and hope.
Using a moving chorus of 30 as well as soloists and an acting company of 6, the piece exploited the vast stage of Casa Da Musica as well as the auditorium itself.
“A wonderful opportunity…uplifting and celebratory…enthusiastic and exciting…Martin Parr’s direction highlighted the celebratory aspects of the music…spectacular and magnificent”
