In the Rehearsal Studio with Andy Packer

Published On: Wed 06 June



For our second National Season tour of 2018 Beethoven Widmann Beethoven we are collaborating with Andy Packer, theatre-maker and director of theatre company Slingsby, to bring the stage to life.

We’ve been spending time with Andy in our studio, talking about the life and work of the composers…
