Out of the Shadows

A Concert featuring Works by Robert Hugill
As part of Omnibus Theatre, Clapham's 96 Festival, its celebration of queerness and theatre

British composer Robert Hugill is delighted to announce that following its successful premiere in February 2023, Out of the Shadows, the evening of his music will be returning in 2024.

The featured works by Robert Hugill, including two significant recent works, showcase his exceptional sensitivity to text and melody, which shines through his clear and lyrical musical language.

As part of 96 Festival at Omnibus Theatre, 1 Clapham Common Northside, London SW4 0QW, a celebration of queerness and theatre, Out of the Shadows will be performed at 7pm on Sunday, 16 June 2024.

The performers are tenor Ben Vonberg-Clark (precentor at the church of St John the Divine, Kennington and conductor of the London Youth Boys' Choir), baritone Jonathan Eyers (Young Artist at the National Opera Studio), and pianist Nigel Foster (founder and artistic director of the London Song Festival).

The programme features two of Robert Hugill’s cantatas.

Out of the Shadows, inspired by a re-reading of Graham Robb's book 'Strangers: Homosexual Love in the Nineteenth Century’, uses historic texts to explore homosexual men's gradual emergence in the 19th century.

Et expecto explores ideas of life after death via Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, ballads about the body-snatchers Burke & Hare, the Wikipedia entry on Cryonics and Walt Whitman’s poetry.

Alongside these there are love songs and settings of Michaelangelo’s sonnets plus a depiction of an Aids candlelit memorial.
