A remarkable one-man show by one of Great Britain's most renowned performers – Benjamin Luxon, will be presented at a private residence in Padang Galak (Sanur) on Saturday, February 25, 2005.

Lauded for nearly 30 years work as a recitalist, concert performer and opera performer – Benjamin Luxon CBE began his performance career with the English Opera Group under the direction of the legendary Benjamin Britten who composed the role "Owen Wyngrave" especially for Luxon's rich baritone voice.

A regular performer over the years at Covent Garden and Glydelbourne, Luxon has appeared at virtually every opera house in Europe including Amsterdam, Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt, Prague, Vienna and La Scalla in Milan. Commanding a repertoire that ranged from Early Music to Contemporary renditions of musicals, Victorian ballads and music hall, Luxon has over 100 recordings to his credit

Made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1986 for his service to British Music, Luxon's vocal musicality was cut tragically short by a serious hearing ailment that ended his singing career in the mid-1990's. Since that time he has been very much in demand as a narrator with major symphony orchestras, an educator, an opera director and for his commanding one man shows of poetry readings.

An Most Memorable Evening - Not to be Missed.

Performing for free in Bali, Benjamin Luxon will present the poignant poetry of soldier-poets from World War I. The inspired lines of Sigfried Sasson, Wolfred Owen, Isaac Rosenberg and Robert Graves – among others – will expose the cruel nature of war and the indefatigable human spirit in the midst of war's carnage and indescribable horror.

Attendance is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted to benefit the YKIP Foundation - dedicated to providing educational and health assistance to Bali's less fortunate.

Seating is limited and reservations/performance location instructions are available via the e-mail link below.
