The concert of music and text inspired by Ovid will feature scores from previous productions alongside music by Debussy, Britten and Walton.

Following their collaboration last year on Shakespeare Live!, RSC Musicians will reunite with the Orchestra of the Swan for the concert, which will take place in the Swan Theatre on 19 October as part of The Wondrous Imagination of Ovid the Storyteller, a series of events celebrating Shakespeare's favourite poet.        

There will also be a performance of Ted Hughes' retelling of Actaeon by RSC Associate Artist Paul Jesson with music by David Matthews, as well as the world premiere of a specially commissioned work by our 2017 Resident Composer, Sarah Llewellyn.
