Performance of Gustav Holst’s The Idea

Date: 27th Jun 2021

Gustav Holsts The Idea – a UK Premier.

Irrational Theatre freshly fuses an exuberant band and singers with this unseen early Holst to create a family fun, absurdist theatrical operetta.

The Prime Minister has had an idea….

A rare chance to see this early work  which  makes a UK Premier in St Albans at St Saviour’s Church Hall, Sandpit lane on the 20th June 2021 before heading on a small tour to Windsor’s Old Court, Chiswick Playhouse , Harpenden Park Hall and Up Stairs at The Gate House, Highgate.

This early work was composed by Holst in his early college years at the age of 22. It’s addictively tuneful and G&S esk in style, it sheds an insight into his early development with flourishes and hints of what was to become the more mature and well known Holst we know today.  

Newly arranged and staged for a small band and ensemble of singers.
