Aurora Orchestra and Nwando Ebizie invite you to step inside Beethoven’s mighty Fifth Symphony in an immersive experience at Printworks London.

Following sold-out debut performances in 2021, Aurora returns to the legendary Press Halls at Printworks London, formerly the site of Europe’s largest printing presses and now one of the UK’s best-known electronic music venues.

Aurora combines the potential of an orchestra playing from memory with the vast scale of Printworks to give a unique performance.

With the orchestra ‘exploded' across the space, listeners are able to experience the music from inside, getting up close to instrumentalists as they perform in ways that would be impossible in a concert hall.

Also exploded in time, movements of the symphony are interspersed with sound and light installations, enabling audience members to uncover the secrets of the building and choose their own path through this great work.

Whether you’ve never experienced an orchestral concert or have loved this symphony all your life, this event offers a completely fresh and revelatory take on Beethoven’s music.

Co-presented with the Southbank Centre, these special performances are co-curated by multi-disciplinary artist and composer Nwando Ebizie, who has created new music to frame the movements of the symphony.

The events feature three-dimensional ‘acoustic shell’ audio reinforcement provided by leading German specialists d&b audiotechnik.

Aurora’s performance at Printworks is supported by the Royal Philharmonic Society Audience Fund in association with the Rachel Baker Memorial Charity
