As an Easter treat the ‘sensational’ (Daily Telegraph) Isango Ensemble, who triumphantly presented Venus & Adonis during our Globe to Globe festival in 2012, return with an intimate version of their acclaimed production of Mysteries, a re-working of the 14th century Chester Passion Plays encompassing the whole of the Bible from Creation to Last Judgement. Isango’s unique version of these plays will be performed by a small group of choral singers in Xhosa, Zulu, English, Latin and Afrikaans.

★★★★★
Utterly captivating…an exhilarating sensory feast.’
Evening Standard 

'A glorious, vibrant, hypnotic account of the medieval Chester mystery plays, it makes other shows look just a little bit underpowered.'
