An illustrated lecture by conductor Edward-Rhys Harry.  Is it possible that Wales’ famous poet son extended his literary influence beyond the worlds of narrative, poetry and prose?

Join us for a special evening punctuated by live and recorded performances of the words of Dylan Thomas in ways you will not have heard before.

The evening will open with a performance by Dunvant Male Voice Choir followed by the Welsh premiere of The Force That Through The Green Fuse Drives The Flower – a choral setting of Thomas’ poem written in his late teens and commissioned in this centenary year by the family of Dylan Thomas himself.

 

Featuring:-

  • Dunvant Male Voice Choir
  • London Welsh Camerata
  • Jenny Trew – piano
  • Steffan Morris – cello
  • Edward-Rhys Harry – speaker and conductor

In association with the Swansea Festival of Music and the Arts.
