“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.
“Loved the ‘drama’” Audience member
Since the Sheffield premiere elements of the programme have been touring the country and have been broadcast on the internet. Adrian Wilson and Katie Goodwin‘s collaborative version of Britten’s Six Metamorphoses after Ovid and Charlie Piper’s piece With Stolen Fire for chamber ensemble and film, have reached over 2000 people in over 24 countries – our widest reaching programme to date.
“A very different experience. All aspects super quality.
Adrian was stunning!” Audience member
If you’re not one of those 2000 people it’s not too late; there’s still one last chance to see it. The final performance takes place in Penistone Paramount in Barnsley on 4th April at 8pm. It seems only fitting that it returns to its South-Yorkshire home for its grand finale.
For those of you who don’t know Penistone Paramount, it’s a beautiful, traditional two-tier cinema/music hall with a small bar and a kiosk for popcorn and ice-cream – the perfect place to end this incredible tour. It’s on the edge of Barnsley and Sheffield, has its own free car park, ample free on-street parking and is just a very short walk from Penistone railway station. Perfect!
