TUBULAR BELLS FOR TWO
HIT THE IMAGE ABOVE TO WATCH VIDEO
WINNER - BEST MUSIC - 2015 ADELAIDE FRINGE
ARRANGED BY AIDAN ROBERTS & DANIEL HOLDSWORTH
Exposing Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells is perhaps the most unlikely smash hit record ever to be released. The beautiful and sprawling progressive Celtic - folk -rock opus shot to number one in album charts around the world in 1973, throwing its young composer into the international spotlight and kick-starting Richard Branson's Virgin Empire.
The original masterpiece required more than 30 musicians to perform it. Now, 40 years on, performed by just two massively talented Australian musicians with over 20 instruments on stage, this thrilling show recreates the album on stage, in real time in a unique and compelling theatrical experience.
Tubular Bells for Two burst onto the international scene at the Sydney Festival and was the smash-hit show of the 2012 & 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringes - winning a Herald Angel Award and garnering several five star reviews for its mix of theatricality and skilled musicianship.
Join us to witness this herculean feat as multi-instrumentalists Daniel Holdsworth and Aidan Roberts recreate the beauty and playful lunacy of one of the most important albums of the 20th Century with just four hands and four feet.
