Past event: The Lock-In: The Willow Baby

Enter a magical-realist world of folk tales, music and visuals in this interlinked cycle of stories inspired by pagan myths. With original text and programming by Aurora’s Principal Viola Max BaillieThe Willow Baby and Other Tales takes the audience on an evocative journey far from London, weaving together live music and a rich visual feast of video and light animation into a truly unique evening of musical story-telling.

As the lights go down on the Hall One stage, join the Aurora players as we move across to Hall Two for a late-night series like no other. Somewhere between a speakeasy and a concert, The Lock-In takes our main Mozart’s Piano programmes as starting points for adventure in the company of the Aurora principals and special guests.

Grab a glass, rub shoulders with the artists, and settle in for an intimate performance that feels like you’ve unlocked the door to the artists’ bar. Whether ravishing or anarchic, playful or sublime, you’re always guaranteed great music and musicians, all in an informal space where you’re free to move around, order a drink, or stand transfixed. Come and join us as we set out in search of late-night serendipity…

This concert is part of the Lock-In Series.

These informal events take place in Hall Two, with a bar service available in the Hall throughout. The Hall Two doors and bar will open immediately after the end of each main Hall One performance, with live music starting approximately 20–30 minutes after the Hall One concert concludes. Events last c. 90 minutes.
