Event Details

‘Searching for St George’

He marched straight on.

Hawk on his fist,

a great mace on his arm

He goes his wondrous way…

Perfect medieval hero, nationalist icon or dragon-oppressor, Saint George has had a dizzying array of versions and symbolic meanings through the ages.

An international ensemble of musicians, led by violinist and composer Joe Townsend, explores the epic ballads, stories and ideas associated with St George: the patron saint of Romania, Greece, Palestine and Russia; soldiers, syphilis-sufferers and Tamworth.

This work-in-progress performance is the result of a week-long artistic residence at Opera North. Followed by a post-show discussion on the St George project and intercultural collaboration.

Produced by Opera North Projects.

Written By Joe Townsend.

Performance lasts 60 minutes, followed by a 30 minute discussion.
