Today, three-quarters of a century after his death,  Ivor Gurney is finally celebrated as a poet and a composer. This Gloucester-born tailor's son thought of himself as both, preferring the term 'maker'. He was many things beside: soldier, cricketer, crack shot, cake eater, nightwalker, wit,  faithful if exasperating friend and, for the last 17 years of his life, asylum inmate.

Interweaving new material with Gurney's own music, poems and letters, Iain Burnside has created a unique piece of music theatre. His Guildhall School cast combines 16 singers, 2 pianists and actor Richard Goulding as Ivor Gurney.



Performers:
Iain Burnside, director
Giuseppe and Emma Belli, designers
Victoria Newlyn, movement
