After its triumphant premiere in February, The Sun Does Shine is back. We will be both performing and recording this thrilling new oratorio from Harvey Brough and Justin Butcher.
At the age of 28, Anthony Ray Hinton was wrongly convicted of multiple murders and sentenced to death by a racist Alabama court. He spent the next 30 years on Death Row, fighting to prove his innocence, before finally being released in 2015. His remarkable story shows how the human spirit can rise above unimaginable hardship.
“The way Brough and Butcher weave all these elements into a seamless whole is masterly; the work is part-opera, part-musical, part-play”. – David Hackbridge Johnson
