About The Event

Kathleen Ferrier Whattalife! tells the story of the great English contralto from her debut as a singer in 1940, through her meteoric rise, to her tragic death in 1953. The text is taken from her letters and diaries interwoven with music from her repertoire. Just like Kathleen during her short but full life, the show has a great sense of fun and talks straight from the heart.
