Requiem for Aleppo
The night will be introduced by BBC World Affairs editor John Simpson, and all money raised will go to support the work of charities Syria Relief and Techfugees. The work will contain 12 dancers from across the world. Cazalet's original music is a combination of Requiem Mass lyrics set to choral music, linked by Arabic poetry from the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries, also set to music, and interpolated throughout with the voices of people from Aleppo telling their real-life stories - stories gathered from recent interviews and which have fed into the development of the work.
