Olga Neuwirth Hommage à Klaus Nomi 40’
Andrew Watts countertenor
Gerry Cornelius conductor
Imagine, then, what might happen when Olga Neuwirth steers her own fantastic imaginative world onto a collision course with Nomi’s. The result is a song cycle like no other – an anarchic, neon-lit encounter between Purcell, Weimar cabaret, bubblegum pop and The Wizard of Oz, in a late-night concert that defies definition.
