A spirited meditation on humankind's enduring fascination with fire from acclaimed composer David Bruce and renowned pyrotechnic artists The World Famous, performed in Southbank Centre Square.
Fire is based on a collage of texts, including works from celebrated poet Vikram Seth and the sixth-century Jewish poet Yannai. The piece - newly-commissioned by The Opera Group and Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival - is performed with the horn ensemble, Horns Aloud and the Spitalfields Music & Voicelab Fire Choir.
