The Orchestra of Opera North: A Day in the Life

The Orchestra of Opera North: A Day in the Life


Andy Long, violin
Robert Guy, conductor
The Orchestra of Opera North

The premiere of a new work in three parts by composer Kevin Malone, paying tribute to West Yorkshire’s textile communities. A concerto for violin and orchestra commissioned by Opera North’s Andy Long, _A Day in the Life_ describes a typical day for a 19th-century child worker in a northern textile mill, inspired by the autobiography of Robert Blincoe, ‘the real Oliver Twist’.

Completing the programme, _A Peterloo Parade_ is a playful overture combining current and historical rally cries in the UK and USA with songs sung before the 1819 Peterloo massacre in Manchester; and _My Mill Life_ is a work for solo violin and pre-recorded monologues by current and former mill workers in Leeds and Bradford.
