This was one of the most exciting evenings I have been to with MitR.
Many of you will remember our innovative Transformations event at the Showroom Cinema as part of our last May Festival. It was an incredible evening that celebrated two significant centenaries – that of the discovery of stainless steel and that of composer Benjamin Britten – through bringing together film and music in a way that we hope
Britten himself could have been proud off.
The performance consisted of many firsts for us and one of those was our first ever
attempt at live-streaming on the internet. And the stats are in. 655 people from 21 other countries watched the event online. Not too shabby for a first time.
Here’s some comments from those of you who experienced the live event in the flesh:
A very different experience. All aspects super quality. Adrian was stunning!
Loved the ‘drama’.
We had visitors from Europe here and I thought it was a great way to show them some of the highlights of British culture and history of the UK and Sheffield – they loved it!
If you watched from Thailand or Lithuania, America or Russia or anywhere else and are reading this blog we’d love to hear from you!
If you missed the premiere performance there’s a chance to see it again in its entirety on Saturday 16th November 2013 at 7.30pm on www.musicintheround.co.uk. The
programme details will be available online to accompany the performance and the main event will be followed by the short film that the pupils at Watercliffe Meadow Primary School created in response to Britten’s Metamorphoses and Katie Goodwin’s film. Get your popcorn ready!
