Liverpool composer Neil Campbell will have his new multimedia work premiered in St Georges Hall this Halloween.
Titled Frankenstein, the show will take place within the Concert Room of his hometown’s Grade I-listed building.
Based on the Mary Shelley novel, the composition has been scored to be performed by an expanded version of the Neil Campbell Collective.
Campbell’s band is an ensemble that combines the energy and intensity of a rock band with classical instrumentation such as classical guitar, cello and operatic soprano.
Commenting about his latest work, Campbell said: “The piece uses the Frankenstein story as a basis to construct a series of musical movements for rock band with classical instruments and choir integrating specially developed visuals and sound design… it will be a gothic and dramatic musical experience taking the listener into the world of Victor Frankenstein, a visionary whose high scientific ambitions ultimately lead to tragic consequences.”
It follows the Campbell Collective’s work on Ghost Stories – A Night Opera, which was performed at St Luke’s Church, within Liverpool city centre, in July.
Tickets go on sale 8 September. More details for the event, taking place on Friday 30 October, can be found here
