This new zeitgeist was embraced by composers throughout the continent and helped forge a renewed sense of identity and a golden age of ‘American’ music. The…

Voila!Europe Theatre Festival

London,The Cockpit8 Nov - 18 Nov
Voila! is back for its fifth year and stronger than ever, as Voila! Europe: more Shows, more Venues and more Languages! Why? To give pan-European theatre makers a focus in London.
