About the event
Blue Pearl: A One World Oratorio is an extraordinary, profound, inspirational new choral work for our times. Blue Pearl celebrates the unity-in-diversity of the earth and of humanity. The central image of the whole work is the earth as seen from space. It is a radical new work; fresh, vibrant, original, yet rooted in the western sacred choral tradition. It is an oratorio for our times, when humanity needs to act ‘in concert’ as never before if we are to avert the climate crisis, and when we need to shine the light of love and compassion in the face of the dark shadow that has fallen over Eastern Europe.
