Betrayal: A Polyphonic Crime Drama is a site-specific evening of intrigue devised by the acclaimed vocal group I Fagiolini and director John La Bouchardière.

Based on the music of Gesualdo di Venosa, this piece of immersive music theatre places you inside a dark world of disturbed minds and chilling secrets. The stark urban setting of Village Underground serves as the crime-scene, re-lived in dance and drama with virtuosic ensemble singing, as I Fagiolini brings the intense harmonic experiments of the composer to life. ‘Music-theatre doesn’t come more visceral than this’. The Independent

Running time: approx 1 hour
