    Breaking the Rules
    The Imagined Testimony of Carlo Gesualdo
    (1566-1613), Composer and Murderer!

    by Clare Norburn with Gerald Kyd as Gesualdo
    Lighting by Pitch Black

    The extraordinary life and music of Carlo Gesualdo, Renaissance prince, gifted composer and notorious murderer. Admired by figures as varied as Igor Stravinsky, Aldous Huxley and Frank Zappa, Gesualdo's strange and fascinating music is brought to life by the sublime voices of The Marian Consort, as Gesualdo spends his final night contemplating his own mortality and the tumultuous events which have led him to this moment.

    ‘It’s hard not to be drawn in by the intimacy of The Marian Consort’s delivery and the vividness of their storytelling’
    Sinfini Music

    ‘Exquisite...the ensemble sings with eloquence and expressive finesse’ The Sunday Times
