First Art Go See to Hull City of Culture
Wed 12 April 2017, 10:00 – 17:00 BST
Go See Trip to Hull City of Culture - including: The Height of the Reeds installation on the Humber Bridge
The Humber Bridge takes centre stage as Opera North turns this iconic structure into a living, breathing piece of sonic art – with music composed by Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen and collaborators Jan Bang and Eivind Aarset.
The deep sounds of the bridge are captured by Hull-based sound artist Jez Riley French and performed by the Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North, all experienced through headphones.
The walk across the bridge is transformed by the glorious music and otherworldly soundscapes to become an epic journey and an intimate whisper in your ear.
Then head into Hull - City of Culture. Grab lunch in one of the many cafes in the city and visit the cultural venues.
In the afternoon, there will be an optional gallery tour - numbers for this may be limited to 15:
