BBC Radio 3 Philharmonic Orchestra: A Clockwork Orange

Synopsis

In the year in which we celebrate the centenary of Anthony Burgess’ birth, BBC Radio Drama in collaboration with the BBC Philharmonic, present a UK premiere of his cult novel A Clockwork Orange.

In 1987 Burgess published a dramatisation of his own classic text which included songs and music also written by the Manchester-born novelist and poet. This will be the first time Burgess’ Clockwork Orange music has been performed along with the play in the UK.

Commissioned by BBC Radio 3, the radio theatre performance of A Play With Music will also be the second time it has been performed since his death, and the first time his songs have ever been broadcast. It will be recorded with an audience in Hull University’s Middleton Hall and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in Drama On 3 the following evening (Sunday 1 October).
