You are invited to a masquerade ball.
There are 7 rooms in this ball.
Each a different colour.
Outside these walls rages a terrible plague – the Red Death.
Follow instructions. Be careful who you speak to.
And beware the chimes of midnight.
Join Aurora musicians in an evening of mystery, drama and games as we explore Edgar Allan Poe’s gothic masterpiece The Masque of the Red Death as depicted in Caplet’s Conte Fantastique for harp and strings.
Grab a glass and settle in for an experimental late-night series that allows audiences to get up close with and even become part of live performances in unique and playful ways! Curated by Aurora’s principal players, the Lock-In features an eclectic mix of our principal player’s favourite music and guest artists. Step inside and be prepared to let go.
Doors open – 9.45pm
Music begins – 10.15pm
Part of The Lock-In series at Kings Place
The event is preceded by Mozart’s Piano: Exsultate Jubilate
The Lock-In Series 2017 is supported by The Radcliffe Trust
