Why Does the Queen Die?

The play, set in Austria towards the end of Schubert's young life (he died at 31), is a celebration of his achievements and friendships. Using contemporary language and allusions, Burnside presents a compelling and often funny snapshot of Schubert, his friendships, intrigues, gossip, drinking, hangovers, dancing and sausage parties, woven seamlessly with Schubert's unforgettable songs, performed live on stage throughout the play.
Author Iain Burnside

Production details

This music theatre piece is the latest in a series of shows developed by Iain Burnside with the Guildhall School. Schubert's circle of friends in Vienna included more writers and artists than musicians. His songs are inextricably connected both to these friendships and the city where they flourished. In WHY DOES THE QUEEN DIE? Iain Burnside unravels these connections through his trademark combination of music and drama. Tickets from: 01869 337 940
