Take a look behind the scenes of Bow Down, with photos of one of the last rehearsals at Hammersmith Riverside studios.
‘Imaginatively staged and expertly performed’ …is what The Telegraph said of our production of Sir Harrison Birtwistle’s Bow Down after its opening at the Brighton Festival.
Directed by our new Artistic Director, Frederic Wake-Walker, Bow Down is a macabre folk tale of thwarted desire, unnatural betrayal and violent jealousy, where two sisters destroy each over the love of a Suitor.
Don’t miss your chance to discover ‘one of Harrison Birtwistle’s best kept secrets’ – The Guardian – when Bow Down travels to the Spitalfields Summer Music Festival this Wednesday 13 June to the Latitude Festival and on Thursday 12 and Sunday 14 July.
You can also catch up with new blogs from our cast over on the Spitalfields Summer Music Festival.
