"Winterreise: A Winter's Journey
8 June 2003

Through music of exceptional beauty, Schubert's Winterreise takes us inside the mind of a rejected lover who travels from the door of his beloved into a frozen landscape of snow-covered roads, hovering crows and deserted villages.

Opera North and Leeds City Art Gallery have commissioned a visual accompaniment to the music from Mariele Neudecker, an internationally acclaimed visual artist working in video, sculpture and installation. This is her first collaborative musical project made for live performance.

Music: Franz Schubert
Words: Wilhelm Müller
Bass-baritone: Andrew Foster-Williams
