Planet Wave

Celebrate poet Edwin Morgan’s centenary as the SNJO perform the colossal work PLANET WAVE: an extraordinary collaboration between Morgan and composer Tommy Smith. Through music, poetry, theatre, and sound effects explore waves of history from the beginning of time, 20 billion years B.C. through early creation, the demise of the dinosaurs, the arrival of cavemen and the great flood, to construction of the great pyramid and age of Copernicus 1543 A.D.

NB: All concerts will be preceded by an informal talk from 40 minutes before concert starts
