Lunaria (a flower that takes two years to bloom) is a bespoke 15 minute work for 9 musicians and 4 performers that celebrates what is possible within a two year period when artists of many disciplines, across many boundaries make music together. Internationally recognised, Conor Mitchell’s significant output encompasses opera, music-theatre, song cycle, orchestral and chamber work; working with artists as various as Marc Almond, The Pet Shop Boys and NI Opera.
Small red chairs for children make up the first two rows of the Harty Room at Queen’s University Belfast on Sunday night. The young audience have gathered along with older friends and family to hear the concert version of The Belfast Ensemble’s children’s horror opera The Musician as part of Belfast Children’s Festival.
