In a legendary time of heroes and warriors, Prince Beowulf battles demons and magical beasts. The oldest surviving poem in Old English, Beowulf is a fantasy saga which has inspired countless retellings of the myth, including Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
Having formerly worked with the likes of Duran Duran and The Rolling Stones, Armonico Consort’s composer-in-residence Toby Young (former BBC Proms Young Composer of the Year) has set this touching epic drama to music. Written for soprano, choir, harp, keyboards and children’s choir, with strong folk-pop influences, and a gripping script from one of the authors of Have I Got News For You, Beowulf will entertain the whole family.
