Summary

100 years after it was published, award-winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch breathes new life into one of the greatest works of modernist literature, T. S. Eliot’s ‘The Waste Land.’

In 1978, Anthony Burgess, best known for writing ‘A Clockwork Orange’, set the poem to music. Bringing this score alive in an extraordinary performance, Britten Sinfonia is joined by soprano Anna Dennis.
