The Telling


The imagined testimony of Hildegard of Bingen


"[The singers] are mesmerising in the music. An austerely beautiful piece about a woman whose faith gave her extraordinary strength and courage."
The Guardian

A concertplay (where music and theatre collide) written by Clare Norburn and directed by BAFTA-nominated Nicholas Renton.

Vision explores the extraordinary life of the visionary medieval abbess Hildegard of Bingen, providing an insight into the painful and visceral visionary experiences Hildegard suffered throughout her life. It is “an imagined testimony” as Hildegard, played by actor Teresa Banham (subject to availability), revisits and re-experiences meaningful memories alongside her haunting and distinctive chant, with full staging and stunning lighting.
