Out of the Shadows: an Evening of Music for LGBT History Month

This activity is completed or marked as expired


An evening of music by contemporary composer Robert Hugill for LGBT History Month featuring the world premieres of two cantatas.

From the twilight world of the 19th & early 20th century homosexual to a desperate search for eternal life.

Out of the Shadows takes us from the earliest tentative admissions of same sex attraction, to cruising in a bath house in Imperial Russia to Walt Whitman's unashamed admission of his sexuality.

Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum moves between the certainty of the Latin creed, to explorations of cryogenic, the body-snatching of Burke and Hare and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, before resolving in the homoerotic pantheistic transcendentalism of Walt Whitman with its celebration of Death itself.
