Ancient tales told with the music of the frozen north

Following sold-out performances in South Australia and an incredible show in Hobart at the Festival of Voices, Elephant in the Room Productions is proud to revive Midnight Sun: An Evening of Icelandic Myth and Music for one night only in Canberra!

A celebration of Icelandic culture from ancient Vikings through to the modern-day, Midnight Sun will be held on Friday 13th September in the sublime acoustics of the Wesley Music Centre. Tickets are now on sale.

Odin, Thor, Freya, Loki. These names are legendary, but do you really know their story?

Midnight Sun brings together the tales of the old gods with sublime vocal music. Enjoy an evening of Nordic myths and beautiful music that stretches all the way from the poetry of the ancient Vikings to the modern musical stylings of Bjork and Jonsi.

Featuring 8 accomplished singers, including ACT artists, Sydney-based soprano Karen Fitz-Gibbon and South Australian baritone Jamie Moffatt, Midnight Sun is an unmissable live music event. Take a musical journey from the birth of Odin through to Ragnarok: The Twilight of the Gods.

Come hear these ancient tales told with the music of the frozen north. For one night only, Wesley Music Centre will become the land of the Midnight Sun.

Midnight Sun: An Evening of Icelandic Myth and Music takes place on Saturday 13th September, 7pm at Wesley Music Centre.
