Music Impossible

18/5/2013: Music Impossible @LSO St Lukes, London

In a city from which music has been forcefully banned, a group of citizens secretly manages to discover the truth about the missing sounds and colours. This is a theatrical music performance, devised and composed by Gregory Emfietzis, and presented as a shadow puppetry show. Based on Myrto Loulaki‘s fairy tale, it follows Roger on his mysterious journey, full of thrills and action, as he strives to find a way to destroy all evil.

The development and production of this project have been generously supported by the Arts Council England and the London Symphony Orchestra (through the LSO Soundhub scheme). The above recordings have been taken from the preview performance of Music Impossible at LSO St Lukes and the subsequent performances at Iris Theatre, Covent Garden.
