Burying the Dead takes the audience on a ﬁctional journey inside the head of composer Henry Purcell (1659-1695) and gives a ﬁrst-person account of the Fire of London, life in the Restoration Theatre and the vibrant taverns and streets of London, with live music of the period performed by rising star ensemble Ceruleo.
Following on from their acclaimed UK-wide tour, the new video series ‘Behind the Scenes of Burying the Dead’ will explore the making of the show, including interviews with Niall Ashdown (Henry Purcell), playwright Clare Norburn, director Thomas Guthrie, costume designer Hannah Pearson and lighting designer Natalie Rowland of Pitch Black Lighting. Members of Ceruleo will also delve into the music featured in Burying the Dead as well as sharing stories from the rehearsals.
