Towards an Unknown Port

A new song-cycle by English composer Helen Chadwick

Towards an Unknown Port is powerful short cycle of songs by Helen Chadwick, written in response to The Emperor of Atlantis by Victor Ullmann. It will be performed on stage before The Emperor of Atlantis in selected locations on ETO’s Autumn 2012 tour. It is designed by Kitty Callister. The orchestral arrangements are by Iain Farrington.

The songs feature lyrics adapted from children’s accounts of the Balkans’ conflict 20 years ago, as well as poems written by children in the Terezin camp.

ETO is working with groups of singers up and down the country. St Mary’s and St John’s Primary School and Hendon Secondary School combine for the first performances at the Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House in October, while in Cambridge we are working with Cambridge Youth Opera, and with Kent County Youth Choir in Tunbridge Wells.

We are delighted to be collaborating once more with Harrogate Vocalis for the performance in Harrogate. Local schools provide the choirs for the shows in Exeter (at the Exeter Northcott) and Malvern (Great Malvern Priory).
