Richard Ayres - The Garden

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Richard Ayres’ The Garden is an irreverent and darkly comic tale for our age.

In a work inspired by Hieronymus Bosch and Dante’s Divine Comedy, a dissatisfied man digs down from his garden to hell, then all the way up to heaven in search of meaning.

Ayres has developed a distinctive style in his alternative semi-staged concert works – and this latest is sure to offer a truly unique music-theatre experience, performed by the London Sinfonietta.
