This theatrical concert is inspired by the figure of Prometheus, who dared to steal fire from the gods.
Featuring soloist Marcus Farnsworth, this eclectic selection of music charts a course from the Greek myth which inspired Beethoven to the ‘modern Prometheus’ of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, whose shadow looms large over HK Gruber’s surreal masterpiece.
By turns ravishing, fearsome, funny and sharply satirical, Frankenstein!! offers an unusual partner to Beethoven’s monumental fifth symphony , presented here by Aurora in a memorised performance. No matter how often you’ve heard the work in concert previously, this direct, communicative treatment promises a fresh experience of the composer’s best-known work.
