Dawn at Galamanta was the centrepiece of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the City of London Festival. The piece is a fantasy story about the drama of life. As you would expect, there is love and betrayed love, jealousy and seduction, friendship and destruction. All parts are tailor-made for specific performers.
The original work was first presented in Stockholm's Central Station in 2009 to a large audience and to a great acclaim, justifying the award it subsequently received. This will be its UK première on a highly prestigious occasion.
Share Music Sweden worked with the internationally renowned trombonist, composer and conductor Christian Lindberg, the Swedish Wind Ensemble and the choreographer Helene Karabuda. The Galamanta project resulted in a commissioned piece of work.
Dawn at Galamanta conveys the unique quality of everyone’s creative expression. The focus is on the artistic encounter that makes the most of the prerequisites of each individual. Performers come to the stage with altogether different backgrounds to work with a professional conductor and orchestra.
