The desperate, dancing denouement from Death's Cabaret - A Love Story, a compelling concerto for cello/baritone/actor and strings.

Writer - Martin Riley
Composer - Stephen Deazley
Performers - Matthew Sharp and the Sacconi Quartet
Camera & Edit - Joe Morgan

Simon's life has broken. To heal it, he has gone back to his family roots in Brittany...and fallen in love with Louana. But Simon's dark past and a terrifying nightmare are about to crash into his present and his bliss.

Inspired by anyone who has ever thought or said of an opaque/alienating/disconnected/inward-turning classical music experience, something along the lines of, 'I don't know enough to have an opinion...'

A concerto for the 21st-century – a cabaret concerto. A unique and thrilling marriage of the 19th-century concerto form with the grime and sensuality of cabaret, weaving intoxicating instrumental music with song and an original folktale of love, loss and CONNECTION – both an innovation and a re-invention of an ancient tradition. Dangerous, intimate, bardic, raw and virtuosic, it promises to be an unforgettable night.

As our hero discovers.

Mistress Death comes to call. Your time upon this earth is up. When life is in the balance, what will save you? Love, music or waking from the nightmare?

Filmed at a performance at the Auditorium Bizet, Dunkerque, May 22nd 2018
