Ian Bostridge in theatrical, multimedia staging of Zender’s ‘Winterreise’



This week Ian Bostridge performs Hans Zender’s orchestrated interpretation of Schubert’s song cycle, ‘Winterreise’ in a new theatrical, multimedia production by director, Netia Jones entitled ‘The Dark Mirror: Zender’s Winterreise‘.
Ian will be joined on stage at the Barbican Centre by the Britten Sinfonia conducted by Baldur Brönnimann. 
Regarded as a world-leading performer of ‘Winterreise’, Ian’s book ‘Schubert’s Winter Journey: Anatomy of an Obsession’ recently won the Duff Cooper Prize for non-fiction and his many performances of the work have been received to great critical acclaim: “This was without doubt the most extraordinary, riveting, uncanny performance of Schubert’s great song-cycle ‘Winterreise’ I have ever witnessed.” (Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph, 13 January 2015)
There will be three performances, on 12, 13 and 14 May. Tickets available here
