Tao of Glass at The Royal Exchange Theatre at Royal Exchange Theatre, City Centre, 11–20 July 2019, from £10 - Book now

Part-concert, part-performance, Tao of Glass takes 10 brand new pieces of music by Philip Glass and marries them to ten meditations on life, death and Taoist wisdom. Expect to be mesmerised as performer-director Phelim McDermott leads an ensemble of musicians and puppeteers in a dream-inspired performance that seeks the answer to the question: Where does true inspiration come from?
