Music & Spoken Word
Oxford Lieder Festival 2019: The Kalevala: Where the Bear Sleeps
Nick Hennessey (Storyteller)
Nick Hennessey is widely acknowledged as one of the UK’s leading contemporary storytellers. In 2000 Nick entered the world championship of epic-singing in Espoo near Helsinki, performing The Kalevala (the Finnish national epic) to the Finns, in English. And he won! Today, he delivers us into the deep, snow-filled forests of the Finnish far north. In this world created from shards of egg-shell, the sun and moon are fought over, magic is done and undone, and life is shot through with bizarre ordeals, misguided passions, magical battles and transformations. Expect a remarkable performance of this elemental epic.
