Camerata - The Conference of the Birds

Presented by Camerata, QPAC and Brisbane Festival

The Conference of the Birds brings to life the epic poem of the same name by twelfth century Persian mystic and poet, Attar of Nishapur, in a melding of evocative music, illustrations and spoken word. This allegorical story of love, faith and humanity’s search for the courage within is as relevant today as it was nine centuries ago. Lembit Beecher’s musical setting of the words will be augmented by sumptuous illustrations by New York Times’ multi award-winning illustrator and author, Peter Sis. This poignant and thought-provoking presentation is set to be a festival favourite.
