George the Poet, Víkingur Ólafsson, Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Pride and Prejudice

Tonight Víkingur will play The Arts and the Hours by Rameau, an interlude from the 18th Century French composer’s final opera, Les Boreades. George The Poet is a London-born spoken word performer of Ugandan heritage. His podcast 'Have You Heard George’s Podcast?' has won armfuls of awards and his work as a recording artist and a social commentator has now been recognised at the Visionary Honours Awards for championing diversity and inclusion in the arts, entertainment and showbiz.
