About The Show

Pierrot Lunaire is one of the most controversial and polarising pieces of music ever written. It’s a nasty piece of work: 21 songs about madness, death, sex, dreams, and trauma. The script is surreal and unsettling, and the music is wild, beautiful, and strange.

In this unique staged show, set over the course of one night and built around a stark set consisting of a single four poster bed, Manchester Collective brings Pierrot Lunaire to life. The show features a brand new English translation, a world class line up of artists, and a deep dive into the darkest corners of the piece, guided by NTS/BBC 6 Music broadcaster, Elizabeth Alker.

This is not a work that comes up often. This is not a work you will ever forget.

At The Door

As our concerts tend to sell out before the day of the show, we encourage all of our guests to buy tickets in advance. Any unsold tickets will be available for purchase on the door.




Manchester Collective

Manchester Collective is redefining how a new generation of audiences engage with the arts in the UK. Recently described by the Yorkshire Post as a "powerful, moving, & extraordinary" addition to the UK music scene, Manchester Collective produces world-class, innovative, and outward facing musical experiences for new audiences across Britain. Their thrilling live performances, allied with daring programming and a brazen approach to convention, have seen the Collective reach more than 200,000 people across their first two seasons.

In December 2017, Manchester Collective was appointed Ensemble in Residence at The Stoller Hall, a new flagship concert hall for Manchester. In 2018, Manchester Collective has been featured by publications including The Strad Magazine (twice), Bachtrack (“intimate, immersive experiences without parallel”), and Seen and Heard International (“an astonishing evening”). Classic FM and the BBC have also featured the work of the Collective on an ongoing basis, and in March 2018, MC presented a groundbreaking two hour classical broadcast on NTS Radio.

Recent performing highlights include concert debuts at Kings Place in London, a PRSF supported tour of the Collective’s latest major commission, 100 DEMONS, (featuring electronic musician Vessel, cellist and Radiohead collaborator Oliver Coates, and music by Daniel Elms), and a packed performance of Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time” in The Stoller Hall, broadcast live on Facebook to over 10,000 viewers.
