A queen and a soldier map out a course to reach their desires.
Both attain the same result: Death.
One was willing, but the other unknowing.
With 20th-century composers Britten and Stravinsky, we arrive at the final destination of the journey of life. For some, it is blissful relief from the sorrows of the living. For others, death finds them before life even seemed to have begun. Bear witness as each character treads its final lake into the darkness.
This concert is part of the Voyage Festival, a week-long festival of European classical, contemporary and experimental music, presented by alumni of the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music. Boldly curated for the adventurous audience, the festival experiments with cross-disciplinary performances and redefines concert conventions to unravel new artistic pathways.
