Behind the Scenes of Burying the Dead
// Hello, we are Ceruleo - an early music ensemble based in London.
We are starting a new series Behind the Scenes of Burying the Dead.
Burying the Dead is a concert-play which takes the audience on a fictional journey inside the head of composer Henry Purcell.
Purcell is in his final illness, suffering from feverish dream-like hallucinations in which the past, present and fantasy collide and his songs take on a life of their own, moving from the ‘theatre of his mind’ to the actual theatre and beyond!
Join us on a journey to discover how this show was created and what’s the story behind it. We will interview our fabulous creative team including the playwright Clare Norburn and the Director Thomas Guthrie as well as reveal some stories from the rehearsals!
