On the Axis of this World
Tue 15 March 2016, 18:15 – 20:00 GMT
Cambridge City Opera, in association with The Polar Museum, presents On the Axis of this World by Matt Rogers - an operatic meditation on the vast perspectives of Antarctica, inspired by the words of British explorers. Their haunting writings reach out to us through a shifting musical landscape born of weather systems and ice flow.
