Rhian Sheehan: A Quiet Divide (Aotearoa NZ)

Saturday 20th-Sunday 21st October 2018

Transforming the Theatre Royal into a sublime sound and light venue, composer Rhian Sheehan delivers a truly emotive and immersive audio-visual show, showcasing his brand new album A Quiet Divide, as well as work from his previous acclaimed albums.
