In the cavernous warehouse space of Printworks London, this new music theatre work follows a grieving father’s quest for survival in a world devastated by climate change. Desperate to connect one last time with his daughter, he enters a dark cave, triggering a journey into an underworld of spirits. This latest project furthers the successful collaboration between Tansy Davies and writer Nick Drake following their operaBetween Worlds (2015) which won the 2016 British Composers Award for Stage Work. Cave stars tenor Mark Padmore, mezzo-soprano Elaine Mitchener and is directed by Lucy Bailey and conducted by Geoffrey Paterson.
