Symphonie Fantastique

Date: 3 Sep 2021

Composer Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique is a romantic epic, a monolithic, dark and perfumed symphony that revels in fascination, obsession, the dizzying highs and self-destructive lows of an artist.

Reimagined into a 50-minute live work for the stage, Little Eggs take a French Symphony from the 1800s and – through live music and movement – present a queer theatre work exploring party culture, psychedelia, and violence.

This performance was recorded at the Kings Cross Theatre in February, the stream will be followed by a panel discussion among the creative team, and moderated by Little Eggs Company Director Julia Robertson, discussing their process and the ideas of the work.
