Olivier Award-winning actor Roger Allam will join Britten Sinfonia and Polyphony for our two concerts of Polish composer Pawel Lukaszewski's Via Crucis at the end of the week. The spoken interventions are integral to Lukaszewski's central concept, whereby dramatic iterations accumulate station-by-station, and so we wanted to work with an actor of stature, and who better than the man cast by Stephen Frears as Rogen Janvin in the film The Queen.
Roger won his Best Actor Olivier Award for his performance as Captain Terri Dennis in Privates on Parade at the Donmar Warehouse in 2002. He has worked extensively at theRoyal National Theatre, with Trevor Nunn, John Caird and Phyllida Lloyd, and at the RSC with Steven Pimlott and Tim Albery.
