Enjoy an orchestral performance with conductor Oliver Zeffman, countertenor Jakub Jósef Orliński and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields

Hosted by Oliver Zeffman

To conclude this wonderful week of musical discovery, join us at the V&A, where Oliver Zeffman conducts the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields with superstar countertenor Jakub Jósef Orliński. This special concert was inspired by the museum’s recent exhibition, Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear, and includes virtuosic performances of music by Jen-Baptiste Lully, Igor Stravinsky and contemporary composer Caroline Shaw, among others. Playing with the exhibition’s celebration of masculine attire and appearance, Orliński sings several pieces in falsetto voice, performing high notes in the range typically only sung by female sopranos.
