Stephen McNeff The Burning Boy 70'

With a libretto by renowned children's poet Charles Causley, this 'miracle play for music theatre' weaves the story of Elijah into a harvest-time tale set in a rural England rich in folklore and ritual. A chorus of young harvesters drawn from Gloucestershire are joined by solo treble and BBC Radio 2  Young Chorister of the Year 2018. With the addition of a professional adult cast from the original production, prepare to be enchanted by the immediacy and emotion of this ancient tale.
