Following on from its World Premiere at Stroud Green Festival in June, Clare Norburn's brand new concert/play is coming to Liverpool!
Meet the colourful writer Prosper Mérimée, whose novella Carmen was the basis for Bizet’s opera. Renowned for his myriad love affairs, in creating the character of Carmen, he finds this time he has bitten off rather more than he can chew.... .
Mérimée's experiences will be intertwined with music from Bizet's Carmen and Spanish or Spanish-inspired music by Boccherini, da Falla, Granados, Ravel, Delibes and Albeniz in arrangements by exciting young trio CarmenCo.
"What is most impressive about Norburn's conception is the way various strata and elements combine and cohere so effortlessly. Past and present, truth and fantasy, real and imagined, come together in a tightly knit and intimate drama" Opera Today

Belinda O'Hooley 'Inversions' Tour
📅 8 May 2020 Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room
Belinda O’Hooley is an exceptionally gifted pianist, singer, songwriter and composer and has become renowned for her highly individual, emotional, yet sensitive musicality. She is half of four time BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Best Duo nominees O’Hooley & Tidow alongside her wife Heidi Tidow; together described by The Guardian as ‘exceptional songwriters.’ Their song ‘Gentleman Jack’ features as the closing theme song for Sally Wainwright’s latest BBC/HBO drama series Gentleman Jack.
The new album ‘Inversions’ showcases Belinda’s abilities as a composer and pianist with many of the piano pieces inspired by the songs and tunes her father inherited from a long line of male musicians from Monalea up in the Ox Mountains in the West of rural Ireland. With the passing of her father in 2017, Belinda; the first woman to be handed the tradition, has found the freedom to express the music of her ancestors in her very own, unconventional way, evolving and migrating into something you could describe as an inversion: a reversal of the norm.
Inversions encapsulates the essence of an artist truly at one with her instrument. This show will be a stunning, quality performance, not to be missed.
