New Works By Beamish In September

19/09/2017
September sees the premieres of three new works by Sally Beamish.
On 21 September, Sally Beamish’s second ballet, The Little Mermaid takes to Southampton with the Northern Ballet before touring across the UK. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s original fairytale, David Nixon’s choreography brings to life a mystical underwater world, as a young mermaid is finally allowed her first glimpse of life beyond the ocean.

On the same evening, a new trio, Dance the Beginning of the World is premiered by Trio Apaches for the Malvern Concert Club. With the title coming from the 16th century play The Atheist's Tragedy by Cyril Tourneur, each movement represents part of the evolutionary process, with the first a raw chaos and the final a disintegration representing the inevitable end of mankind.

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment premieres The Judas Passion at Saffron Walden’s Saffron Hall on 24 September, before taking the piece to St John’s Smith Square the following day. With a libretto by David Harsent, this provocative new chronicle of Jesus’ final days, told through the eyes of his betrayer, Judas Escariot, will then receive its US premiere with Philharmonia Baroque on 4 October.

Beamish is will be in residence at the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival in Norway between 26 September - 1 October, where a wide selection of her music will be being performed throughout.
