Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2020 has been cancelled

It is with regret that we have taken the very difficult but ultimately inevitable decision to cancel the 2020 Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

With the rapidly escalating health-crisis and with the safety of our audiences, staff and artists at heart, we have taken the decision that it is impossible for us to deliver the Festival this May.

If you have booked a ticket for the Festival, you do not need to do anything. You are entitled to a refund and we will be in touch soon. Please bear with us during this difficult time. If you have the capacity to make a donation of part or all of your ticket value, we would be extremely grateful – it would help ensure we’re well-placed to support artists and be able to present future Festivals.

Williams/Clarke Shaping the Invisible

Marking 500 years since da Vinci’s death, innovative vocal ensemble I Fagiolini illuminate projections of his most iconic artworks with complementary choral masterpieces from across the centuries.

The project’s creators, director Robert Hollingworth and Leonardo expert Professor Martin Kemp, will introduce the music and artworks from the stage in a tribute to the greatest polymath the world has ever seen, who famously described music as having the power to shape the invisible.

Among the works to be explored, the iconic form of Vitruvian Man is matched by the perfectly proportioned music of Leonardo’s contemporary, Josquin. The recently identified Salvator Mundi is paired with sacred settings of the text which inspired it by Thomas Tallis and Herbert Howells. Leonardo’s famous depictions of women are seen through the prism of Claudio Monteverdi and a sensual ‘aural tapestry’ by Messiaen pupil Jean-Yves Daniel-Lesur. And a new commission from Adrian Williams celebrates the inquiring scientific mind of the ultimate Renaissance Man.
