I have a had a life-long love of the arts; enjoying theatre, ballet, art and movies. We are all time poor and have limits to our entertainment budget so I hope an honest review will help make your choices easier.
An enchanting evening for lovers of fine music and history
Karakorum: A Medieval Musical Journey sounds like an enchanting evening's entertainment for lovers of music and history. Combining the talents of the Brandenburg Choir and the French 'medieval world folk' ensemble, La Camera delle Lacrime, Karakorum promises a musical journey back to the 13th Century.
Founded by Genghis Khan, Karakorum (capital of the Mongol Empire) was an important citiy in the famous Silk Road trade route. This performance reimagines the music encountered by 13th-century Flemish monk, William of Rubruck, on his epic Silk Road journey from Constantinople to Karakorum.
The production will be narrated by Australian actor David Wenham, known for his acclaimed performances in:Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers and Return of the King; Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Men Tell No Tales; Moulin Rouge; and many other great hits.
