A Child's Christmas in Wales, and other stories

With narrator Mark Tattersall.

A festive fairytale treat for all the family, A Child’s Christmas in Wales chronicles Dylan Thomas's own childhood memories and remains one of his most popular and loved works.

In this wonderful adaptation for strings, step into December days ‘as white as Lapland’, where mischief is easily found, snowballs are hurled, and the curious grownups are shrewdly observed.

I, Object: An Opera Double Bill

Open Rehearsal (4pm); Panel Discussion (6pm); Performance (8pm)

The Ligeti Quartet, along with other City Music Foundation artists, will perform in this double bill of operas by Michael Nyman and Kate Whitley.

Whitley’s Unknown Position was inspired by Erika Eiffel, who famously married the Eiffel Tower in a real life example of object sexuality or objectophila. In the libretto, by Emma Hogan, the woman portrayed falls in love with a chair.
