From an isolated lighthouse on the southernmost tip of the Shetland Islands, three opera singers and an ensemble of musicians will send a call about love and death – for all those who care to listen.

Join us in the gallery at Crescent Arts to listen to the live transmission. There will be light refreshments. The live sound broadcast will start promptly at 3pm and will last approximately 1 hour.

Little Birds and a Demon – a Live Transmission can also be heard live at public listening stations in Barrow-in-Furnace, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Fleetwood, Glasgow and Leeds.


Other ways to listen:

Listeners anywhere can be put through to the live performance by calling +44(0)113 3201440 at the scheduled time. Calls cost local rates. Sound quality will be greatly reduced when listening on a telephone.

Listen live on ResonanceFM, online, on 104.4FM in central London and on DAB across Greater London.
