Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire is one of the most influential pieces of twentieth century music.
CLOD ENSEMBLE’s production of this seminal piece is sung in German. The ensemble of musicians create an extraordinary lunar sculpture onto which Alice Oswald’s beautiful English translation of the text is projected.
The audience are free to walk around the musicians, getting as close as they dare, making Schoenberg’s darkly comic masterpiece an unforgettable musical experience.
