Music Under the Knife: DEBUT at The Old Operating Theatre
You will be among a select group of people who will experience an exciting event in the attic of St Thomas' Church in London Bridge: a Classical music concert in the oldest operating theatre in Europe.
DEBUT brings its critically acclaimed Classical music series to the Old Operating Theatre, this place once filled with screams, now takes on the guise of a concert hall.
After climbing the 18th century spiral staircase into the bell tower, you will be greeted at the shop and lead into the wonderful Herb Garret, and step back in time to explore the museum and its collection. When the time is right you will receive a short introduction to the history of the Old Operating Theatre Museum & Herb Garret and the grisly world of Victorian surgery (including a demonstration) before the advent of anaesthesia and antiseptics, after which you will be invited into the operating theatre where the concert will take place.
As a youthful and vibrant company DEBUT shares Classical music in fun and engaging ways, introducing world-class musicians who perform some of the most beautiful music ever written, with personality and finesse.
Expect fireworks from classically trained singers, drama from West End performers, and passionate playing from breath-taking musicians, you will not be disappointed — intimate, alternative and engaging!
Featured in Opera Now and Classical Music Magazine, this DEBUT series will be a unique and relaxed experience in the historic setting of the Old Operating Theatre.
