GUSTAV HOLST'S THE IDEA :
A UK PREMIER
SATURDAY 26TH JUNE | 7PM & 9PM
Gustav Holst’s The Idea – a UK Premier.
Irrational Theatre freshly fuses an exuberant band and singers with this unseen early Holst to create a family fun, absurdist theatrical operetta.
The Prime Minister has had an idea….
The work makes a UK Premier . This early work was composed by Holst in his early college years at the age of 22. It’s addictively tuneful and G&S esk in style, it sheds an insight into his early development with flourishes and hints of what was to become the more mature and well known Holst we know today.
Newly arranged and staged for a small band and ensemble of singers.
