- Sitting in the middle of a dark, transformed world the audience is cocooned by sights and sounds in an immersive and utterly fresh experience of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons intertwined with new music by composer/producer Anna Meredith for string orchestra and electronics.
- ANNO is at times haunting and achingly beautiful, at others punchy and bombastic, it is a lingering experience that evokes the passing of a year—from the awakening of spring, to the mournful intensity of summer, to the hushed darkness of winter.
- Combining old and new, acoustic and electronic, 'popular' and classical, ANNO ultimately defies and questions our need for any such categorization. The performance includes amplified sound and projected visuals drawn by Anna’s sister, Eleanor Meredith.
