EIGHT SONGS FOR A MAD KING

Kelvin-Thomas-Eight-Songs300 Clive Barda
 Kelvin Thomas in the production of Peter Maxwell Davies’s masterpiece.  Over 40 years after it was composed this extravagant, disturbing and poignant portrayal of madness remains as powerful and exciting as ever.



I saw Music Theatre Wales in this performance of Peter Maxwell Davies's Eight Songs for a Mad King recently. They perform 'intimate opera' of a compelling and intense kind. Catch up with them if you can!
