The Arts Institute, in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth, presents Some Call It Home. Join us for this provocative multimedia music drama that brings to the stage conflicting perspectives of our uneasy relationship with the land – our home, our planet.
With live music and international star soloists, this hard-hitting work of art – part of the Mayflower 400 commemorations – explores how we have shaped human destiny across time by bringing to life pivotal events involving our relationship to our land from 1620 to the present.
We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
The University’s Music Director, Dr Robert Taub, has commissioned two internationally recognised composers to write the musical score: Jonathan Dawe (NYC) and Jane O’Leary, a direct descendant of Mayflower passenger Richard Warren. An ensemble comprised of musicians from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mark Forkgen, NYC Metropolitan Opera Young Artist award-winning soprano Erika Baikoff and the highly acclaimed English baritone Timothy Nelson will bring this scintillating musical drama to life. Created, produced, and directed by Dr Robert Taub.
