'Beowulf' (Opera at Chilmark)

  • Cleeves Farm Chilmark, Salisbury (map)

Beowulf is an Opera at Chilmark production in collaboration with Cantata Dramatica.

Cantata Dramatica commissioned this well known story of monsters, a fiery dragon, and a Swedish hero with his band of (not always) fearless seamen, in 2015. The fast-paced narrative has also been enhanced to encompass the women's point of view and the consequence is a moving, lyrical and emotional three act opera with an evocative sound world from Louis Mander, with whom we first worked on Cantata Eliensis.

The performance will begin with a short introductory talk at 5 pm and will end at around 8pm. There is a long picnicking interval in the attractive courtyard next to the large barn at Cleeves Farm which is turned into an opera house for the occasion.
