To mark the 400th anniversary of the unique relationship between Derry~Londonderry and the City of London, Northern Irish poet Paul Muldoon and composer Mark-Anthony Turnage have created a new choral work interspersed with music devised by local young people. The world première will be performed simultaneously in the two Guildhalls of London and Derry~Londonderry, with Camerata Ireland and conductor Barry Douglas. The London audience can also hear Mendelssohn's incidental music to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. At Sixes & Sevens takes the walls of Derry as its starting point, whilst Shakespeare's comedy casts a Wall as one of its characters and a source of misunderstanding for Pyramus and Thisbe.
