The Silver Tassie
Barbican Hall, EC2 Sat
The focus of the Barbican’s weekend of events to mark the armistice centenary is a performance of the second opera by Mark-Anthony Turnage (pictured), based upon Sean O’Casey’s anti-war play. This concert staging has Ashley Riches as the football-mad Harry Heegan, with Sally Matthews as Susie and John Tomlinson as Croucher. Ryan Wigglesworth conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
