by Tommy Smith & Edwin Morgan
featuring actor Niall Greig Fulton
Celebrate Edwin Morgan’s centenary as the SNJO perform the colossal work ‘Planet Wave’: an extraordinary collaboration between ex poet-laureate Morgan and composer Tommy Smith. Through music, theatre, sound effects and poetry, explore waves of history from the beginning of time 20 billion years B.C. through early creation, the demise of the dinosaurs, arrival of cavemen, and the great flood, to the construction of the great pyramid and the age of Copernicus 1543 A.D.
“The music carried a powerful emotional charge that mirrored Morgan’s poems to perfection.”
