Sumidagawa / Curlew River

Benjamin Britten visited Japan in 1956, saw a performance of SUMIDAGAWA and was inspired to write his own extraordinary English version of a grieving mother searching for her lost son. This is a rare opportunity to experience both works together in a single evening, performed in their original languages by a cast of Japanese and British artist.
