It’s been announced at today’s press meeting: We'll be performing at The Venice Biennale this year - singing both the European premiere of a brand new production of Saariaho's 'Only the Sound Remains’ and a separate concert with Lang's 'The Little Match Girl Passion’ and Pärt’s ’Stabat Mater'. The performances will be 18th and 19th September. More information soon!
It is with great sorrow that we have received the news of our friend the Polish poet Adam Zagajewski’s death, and send our condolences to his family.As our last concert before the first lockdown last year, we had the great fortune of working with him on his poems set to music by Argentinian composer Pablo Ortiz. We premiered it with The Smith Quartet in Copenhagen and will work to give the project a long life in Adam’s memory. It was a true privilege working with you! R.I.P.
Here is the link to a trailer from the concert we did with Adam in February 2020

enTmenshT Vimeo Premiere
In September 2018, Theatre of Voices premiered Line Tjørnhøj's 'enTmenschT' in Aarhus. Following the experience of four artists and composers who lived during the early to mid-20th century, the work explores their art and music. Featuring Alma Mahler, Oskar Kokoschka, Charlotte Salomon, and Alfred Wolfsohn as characters in the piece Tjørnhøj explores these individuals through singing, shouting, shrieking, sighing, or one of many other methods throughout the work.
Join us on 23 March for the Vimeo premiere of the archive footage from the concert.
Follow us on our new Instagram account (@theatre_of_voices) and Facebook for our character profiles before the 23 March premiere.
