Dawn at Galamanta
A daring, innovative tale of love, betrayal and murder from Share Music Sweden. The mythical town of Galamanta is the setting for a story created and performed by disabled and non-disabled musicians and dancers assembled by Share Music Sweden, with specially developed music and choreography. This dramatic tale of love, local politics, betrayal and murder makes its UK Premi?re at the impressive Guildhall Great Hall, the 600-year-old headquarters of the City of London Corporation. It forms the second half of a lively programme that includes Gershwin's An American in Paris and Andrea Tarrodi's A Tribute to Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Jack Teagarden, conducted by world-renowned conductor and trombonist Christian Lindberg. This event is a centrepiece of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the City of London Festival, presented at the historic heart of its home in the City. This prestigious occasion demonstrates the vital contribution disabled artists make to the cultural life of any country when given a 'level playing field' - or in this case a level performance platform - along with their professional colleagues. Dawn at Galamanta concludes an evening of varied and delightful music-making by some of Sweden's finest performers under the direction of one of the world's great solo artists, Christian Lindberg. The original work, complete with choreography and video installations to accompany the music, was first presented in Stockholm's Central Station to a large audience and great acclaim, justifying the awards it subsequently received. This is its UK premiere.
