Newly formed performance company Indomitable Productions presents its debut production in celebration of Britten’s centenary with a wholly new and innovative dramatization of Britten’s Five Canticles, a beautiful set of songs for a small ensemble of performers. Supported by Britten100, St David’s Hall, Arts Active, Cardiff Council and Cardiff University School of Music, the production will tour three centres (Cardiff, Bristol and Bath) in early December. Joined by renowned speaker, conductor, educator and Britten expert, Jonathan James of The Bristol Pre-Conservatoire, The Five Canticles is an evening spectacle you won’t forget. This thought-provoking production asks questions not only of Britten’s music, but of his love and life also, focusing on the darkest and brightest moments of a person’s existence.
