Rory Kinnear

Actor Rory Kinnear presents a personal selection of music celebrating the virtues and complexities of the human voice. Including Strauss's Geduld and Mozart's Mass in C minor.

Ahead of his first lead singing role in twenty years in The Threepenny Opera at The National Theatre, actor Rory Kinnear presents a personal selection of music for voice. The voice as instrument, the voice as storyteller, voices together and voices alone, voices from the past and present, sacred and secular, voices which have all recently made him think: "Oh gosh, how long until we open?"

Including Strauss's Geduld which brings back painful memories of a school singing competition, Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares who inspired a plum brandy soaked trip to Bulgaria, and Mozart's Mass in C minor, which moved Rory to tears in a village hall in the Brecon Beacons.
