The Cabinet opens up north!

On Friday 22nd and Monday 25th March Martyn Jacques will be performing his acclaimed live soundtrack to the classic silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in Leeds and Manchester respectively.

‘Other musicians have ‘done’ Caligari live. What makes Jacques such a good fit is his grasp of the film’s uniquely haunting atmosphere of seedy carnival corruption and funereal beauty… Spellbinding'. **** The Times

The story of the sinister Dr Caligari and his fairground attraction arriving in the small town of Holstenwall is the perfect match for Jacques’ tender and grotesque songs. He accompanies himself on accordion and piano in a one-man show that is wonderfully rich, lyrical and heartbreaking in equal measure. A freak show in the fairground… very Tiger Lillies!

You can get tickets for the Leeds show at the Howard Assembly Room at this link and for the Manchester performance at the Royal Northern College of Music here.
