The Portrait Choir collaborate with musician and director Andy Staples to create Confession, a production interweaving words from Tolstoy’s existential questionings about the human condition, A Confession (1879/80), and music from Tchaikovsky’s seminal choral work The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (1878). The performance will also feature site-specific sound and lighting design.
The part of Tolstoy will be read by David Horovitch, one of the UK’s leading actors. David’s theatrical credits include performances in the West End, for the RSC, and with the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. On screen he is perhaps best known for playing the character of Inspector Slack in Miss Marple.
Part of the programme of events complementing Russia and the Arts.
