Voyage: The Primitive

  • Conservatory Orchestra Hall YST Conservatory 117376 Singapore (map)

This event is part of Voyage - a festival of music curated and performed by YST alumni that seeks to present classical music in a vivid new light.

A queen and a soldier map out a course to reach their desires.

Both attain the same result: Death.
One was willing, but the other unknowing. 

With 20th-century composers Britten and Stravinsky, we arrive at the final destination of the journey of life. For some, it is blissful relief from the sorrows of the living. For others, death finds them before life even seemed to have begun. Bear witness as each character treads its final lake into the darkness.
