In the cavernous warehouse space of the Printworks, this new music theatre work follows a grieving man’s quest for survival in a devastated world. Desperate to connect one last time with his daughter, he enters a dark cave, triggering a journey into an underworld of spirits. This latest project furthers the successful collaboration between Tansy Davies and writer Nick Drake following their opera Between Worlds(2015) which won the 2016 British Composer Award for Stage Work. Cave stars tenor Mark Padmore, mezzo-soprano Elaine Mitchener and is directed by Lucy Bailey and conducted by Geoffrey Paterson.
"Davies at times reaches that place of emotional embodiment only music can capture, and wraps it in a dark yet cathartic embrace" The Arts Desk
