‹ Back to What's On ONCC: The Spiders’ Revenge

4 - 5 Nov 2017

ONCC Leeds and ONCC Newcastle join forces to perform Peter Maxwell Davies’s short music-theatre work The Spiders’ Revenge.

John Wilkie – Director
James Bingham – Conductor
Jenny Martins – Accompanist
Children – Connor Charlton, Faith Palmer, Eva Prenowitz, Kitty O'Donoughue
Spiders – Jasmine Colgan, Sylvia Cullen, Georgia Lee-Donaldson, Sarah Pemberton
Other animals – members of ONCC Leeds and ONCC Newcastle

Two children, playing in a garden, delight in tormenting ladybirds, snails, spiders and other living creatures who, they claim ‘have no right to be’.

The spiders teach the children a salutary lesson, during the course of which they learn a great deal about the ways of these creatures, finally recognising the wonder of the insect world and acknowledging that all ‘have their place on the earth’.
