About the Show/Event
Information for Hotspur/Pierrot Lunaire at Arcola, Inner London (Opera or Operetta). In 14th-century Northumberland, Elizabeth waits on the fringes of civil war while her husband - the famously-volatile Henry 'Hotspur' Percy - leads a rebel force against the King. Following the world premiere of Iris Dreaming at Grimeborn 2016, Dame Gillian Whitehead and Fleur Adcock?s Hotspur is a passionate depiction of a woman torn between public confidence and private despair in the face of devastating loss. Sung in English with Signdance. Part of Grimeborn 2019
Performers Joanne Roughton-Arnold (Soprano - Elizabeth), Isolte Avila (Dancer - Elizabeth), David Bower (Dancer - Pierrot).
