An ecstatic vision of devotion revealed by cello and orchestra...

The Protecting Veil is music which blurs the line between humanity and divinity – a glimpse into otherworldliness through the Eastern Orthodox rituals celebrated around Mary, Mother of God. We invite you on a journey to the centre of the music through living programme notes – and get close enough to touch as we transform St John’s Smith Square with intimate seating.

Part of Southbank Centre’s ‘Belief and Beyond Belief’ series.
