A Willesden Liederkreis (‘A Willesden Song-Cycle’) is a funny, provocative and touching work from acclaimed countertenor Magid El-Bushra, based on Schumann’s famous opus 39 song-cycle. Bringing his “vocal beauty and fine presence” (Opera Magazine) to an eclectic range of music – from Handel and Schumann to Weill and Sondheim, Bjork and Nina Simone – he tells the story of a lonely Muslim boy, trapped in 1980s suburbia. Encouraged by the likes of Prince, Madonna and Joan Collins, who appear to him through his TV set, he finds the strength to imagine a different world.
