LeFanu 70th Celebrations In 2017


Nicola LeFanu’s The Crimson Bird will be premiered on 17 February 2017 by the BBC Symphony Orchestra with soprano Rachel Nicholls at the Barbican Centre.

Conducted by Ilan Volkov, The performance will mark LeFanu’s 70th birthday and represents her first full-scale orchestral work for three decades. With a text adapted from John Fuller’s poem The Siege, the piece is a mother’s lament for a son caught up in conflict and examines their bond as it is tested within an environment of war and terror.

2017 sees the premiere of a number of new works to celebrate LeFanu’s 70th, including May Rain by the Orchestra of St John’s Smith Square, The Swan for Jeremy Huw Williams at Beaumaris Festival, and String Quartet No.4 performed by the Bingham String Quartet.

July 2017 heralds the revival of LeFanu's popular children's opera The Green Children at the Three Choirs festival. Featuring a libretto by Kevin Crossley-Holland, The Green Children is based on the 12th centry legend of the green children of Woolpit. First performed in 1990, the opera has been produced eight times to resounding success.
