Vision: the imagined testimony of Hildegard von Bingen
When: March 3 2021
Where: Virtual, United Kingdom
The Telling is a medieval ensemble which creates staged concerts to bring early music off the page.
Blurring the boundaries of drama and concert, Vision explores the extraordinary life of the visionary medieval abbess Hildegard von Bingen, alongside her haunting and distinctive chant performed by The Telling.
It is “an imagined testimony” as Hildegard (Teresa Banham) lies on her deathbed, revisiting and re-experiencing meaningful episodes from her past.
The shortened online adaption of the concert/play by Clare Norburn. Directed by BBC director Nicholas Renton.
Vision will be available to watch for free online via Facebook and YouTube for 1 week from Wednesday 3rd March 7pm GMT – Wednesday 10th March 7pm GMT.
