The Winter's Tale: The Hermes Experiment

  • The Cockpit Theatre Gateforth Street London, NW8 8EH United Kingdom (map)

In light of Shakespeare's 400th anniversary, award-winning quartet The Hermes Experiment (harp, clarinet, soprano and double bass) have devised a new interpretation of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale.  Initially developed during an Aldeburgh Music Residency, composer Kim Ashton leads the development of the music, and in the hour-long performance the quartet of musicians become fully integrated into the drama.
