David Pountney Libretto
+ Manchester Collective

The wild, seductive chords of Schoenberg’s masterpiece have intrigued and confounded audiences for over 100 years. This season, Manchester Collective brings this sensual and dangerous world to life, performed in English, in a new translation by David Pountney.

The Collective produce this original, visceral staged production, delving deep into the inner world of the unnamed female protagonist.

Lotte paints a vivid picture of a woman on the edge - inspiration, struggle, ambition, and self doubt. Pierrot Lunaire is presented by BBC 6 Music / Radio 3 broadcaster Elizabeth Alker, who will guide audiences though the emotional wreckage of this musical apocalypse.
