Be there for the London premiere of Pharmakeia, an otherworldly, unnerving fairy tale in a cycle of four movements by Scottish composer James Dillon, with the London Sinfonietta.
Circe transformed the Greek goddess of magic into enchanting musical forms, with moments of suspense, playfulness and mysticism throughout.
Noted in Dillon’s score, the goddess’ particular powers appear as transmutation, illusion and necromancy.
The cycle was commissioned by the London Sinfonietta in celebration of the composer’s 70th birthday, and began with his 2017 work Circe.
Artists from Central St Martins create video art in response to the piece.
