Friday 29th September – Music at The Edge: Whalebone

8pm £10

Music full of contrasts: folk viewed through a rock lens, classic rock with celtic goggles on, original material full of lyrical lines and infectious driving rhythms. It’s evident from watching Whalebone’s exuberant performances that their music is hugely enjoyable to play as well as to listen to. These are skilled musicians who are in deadly earnest about their craft, but having an enormous amount of fun at the same time.

When the Duke seduces Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda, it seems the curse is taking effect…David McVicar’s production highlights the cruelty at the heart of the court of Mantua. Richly dressed courtiers engage in orgies and revelries to Verdi’s heady, spirited dances.
