... to bring the moonlight into a chamber, 2023

Performance at Sir John Soane's Museum, November 2023

Using Shakespeare’s extraordinary Midsummer Night’s Dream as both libretto and plan, I, museum staff and a chorus of amateur and professional musicians rehearse, restage and rearrange key elements of the venue's architecture and the adjacent theatrical structures.
