When Heart of Darkness (developed by AOP) premièred at the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Studios in 2011 it met with great acclaim for its ‘music of startling beauty’ (The Observer) and ‘a magical and haunting sound-world’ (The Telegraph).

Composer Tarik O’Regan has now developed Suite from Heart of Darkness for orchestra and narrator. Tom Phillips, the original librettist, has worked closely from Joseph Conrad’s novella to create the text.

The London première of Suite from Heart of Darkness will be held at Cadogan Hall on Tuesday 23rd April at 7.30pm. The concert is part of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Resident Season, will be conducted by Nicholas Collon and narrated by Sam West. Seats can be reserved here.
