Inspired by the themes of this unique reimagining of one of opera’s great masterpieces, Judith’s Castle will see award-winning composer Electra Perivolaris working with families living with dementia to create new pieces of music drawn from their stories, experiences and musical memories. These works will have their world premieres this autumn, on Saturday 6 November and Saturday 13 November in relaxed performances on the set of the opera at Stone Nest, performed by musicians from the London Sinfonietta and Live Music Now together with singers Gweneth Ann Rand and Michael Mayes.
The concerts will also include reflections and insights from Julian West - a leading expert in the field of dementia and music research alongside poetry readings by actor and Alzheimer's Society ambassador Kevin Whately. The performances will end with an opportunity for a dialogue between the audience and performers to discuss the role music can play to improve the lives of those living with dementia.
