Hear Mike Oldfield’s masterpiece like never before, live on stage with a full band and acrobatic interpretations by Circa Contemporary Circus.
The spectacle marks the 50th anniversary of Tubular Bells, the debut studio album by English multi-instrumentalist, composer and songwriter Mike Oldfield conceived in 1971 and finally released in 1973. Oldfield who was just 17 years old when he started composing the music, recorded and played almost all of the instruments on the album. It gained worldwide acclaim when the opening theme was used for the soundtrack of the horror film, The Exorcist.
Tubular Bells is a progressive journey through classical, jazz, folk, prog rock and electronica.
10 world-class performers from Circa Contemporary Circus will present Oldfield’s work in its physical form, with heart-stopping acrobatics intricately woven together to reflect the music.
The performance is directed by Circa’s groundbreaking and iconoclastic Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz, while the musical director, Robin Smith, has collaborated with Mike Oldfield for three decades including the iconic performances of Tubular Bells at Edinburgh Castle in 1992 and at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.
