Description

What happens when darkness strikes, unexpected? How do night and day affect the human soul? In a semi-staged recital, mainly sung in English, Daïmon invites you on a journey told by poets and composers. In Eclipse, three singers, a pianist and a flautist explore classical and modern repertoire, from Purcell to Crumb, through the prism of light and darkness. Daïmon is a collaborative project of young and enthusiastic performers coming from across Europe who met at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. They offer shows of depth and quality, with musical and dramatic unity.

This is only the third opera I've been to but I'd say it was probably my favourite. The intimate venue combined with simple but effective props and costumes made for a very unique experience which drew the focus onto the performance of singers and musicians. The quality of playing and singing was incredible and really quite impressive to hear such powerful voices at such close quarters. I enjoyed the performance from becoming to end and would very much recommend this to anyone, whether seasoned opera goers or rookies such as myself.

I have never attended an opera before and this was the perfect introduction and appetiser for such a commitment or anyone who believes it's not for them. Within only 50 minutes you are able to witness the power of the talent that glues such a performance together. The show is devised by brilliant artists to keep you fixed to your seat and move only within your mind through the wonderful sound scapes of light and dark. Worth every penny and I would see it again. Thank you

There is some very fine singing and excellent musicianship in this show and an absolutely brilliant and fascinating choice of repertoire. The staging is resourceful but effective - with the simplest of means they are able to create a truly meditative space and some lovely images. You can see how with a bit of money behind it the scope of this show is spectacular (come on producers - get the wallet out.) There are no weak links among the singers but Will Frost did stand out for me, one of those people that as soon as he begins to sing his presence magnifies. If I would like the group to experiment with one thing it is perhaps to look the audience in the eye more often. It is an intimate work in a small space - we are in the room together. A certain amount of staring off into the middle distance is quite endearing (and Will is something of a master of this) but I longed on more occasions to be fixed by the gaze of the singers, really drawn into the world of the characters. But that may well just be a matter of my taste for the immersive - altogether this was a very enjoyable, well sung and played recital, with imaginative use of light and dark and a bold and interesting repertoire.

Go! This is a well staged, intimate, atmospheric musical experience presented by some of the best young voices taking you on a spine-tingling journey from darkness to light. It is well worth the walk to Lauriston Halls.
