20. Swan Song - Opera North, Urban Projections and Manchester Collective (UK)

Step into a symphony in St John’s Churchyard as the trees come alive in music, birdsong and light. The installation by Urban Projections takes flight from Finnish composer Rautavaara’s Swans Migrating. Inside the ancient church of St Johns, Manchester Collective curate an immersive performance of Olivier Messiaen’s Catalogue of the Birds. Swan Song pays tribute to the soaring and flitting glory of birdlife and the transformative, contemplative effect of the so-threatened natural world on human minds and bodies.

Note: Gardens open 6pm to 10pm, Church open 7pm to 10pm
