Royal Opera House puts on non-classical club nightmain
That’s what it’s there for, isn’t it?
Press release follows.
THE ROYAL OPERA HOUSE
CURATED BY GABRIEL PROKOFIEV
Saturday 5th September 8pm
Featuring guest performances from singers of The Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme and dancers from The Royal Ballet, Nonclassical has curated the evening drawing inspiration from their track record of ten years of classical club nights and Gabriel’s background as a DJ and producer.
Collaborating artists include pianist Klavikon who reimagines electronic music through amplified prepared piano, using objects including a custom made pick up, robot dog and stones to create cascading runs of percussion, sub-basses and abstract soundscapes.DJ Mr Switch, reigning World DMC Champion, who is noted worldwide for his party rocking abilities and scratch skills and has been seen at festivals such as Glastonbury and Bestival, cellist Peter Gregson and Juice – a critically acclaimed vocal ensemble.
The event, for 18+only, will close at 1am and have a bar and a chill-out zone with reflective-light knitting workshops, accompanied by harp and DJ duo Tendons. Under the guidance of Lorna Hamilton-Brown, the knitting workshops will use yarn exclusive from America, which glows when captured with a flash camera.
