Damon Albarn is wasting no time indulging once again in his multi-disciplinary creativity. This week his new show Dr Dee: An English Opera, is debuting at the Manchester International Festival (which of course Bjork is also playing).
Dr Dee was John Dee, a 16th century alchemist, astronomer and mathematician who was a consultant to Queen Elizabeth I. Albarn performed ‘Apple Carts’ on The Andrew Marr show last week which you can see here or listen below. The second song, ‘The Reigning Queen’ was debuted on BBC Radio 6.
