Trapped in the Lighthouse

Reading time: 1 min. David Sawer world première

The world première of David Sawer’s The Lighthouse Keepers takes place on 4 July in Cheltenham. Martyn Brabbins conducts the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.

David Sawer on The Lighthouse Keepers:


David Sawer about the story of The Lighthouse Keepers: “father and son are trapped in this lighthouse. It’s not the age of mobile phones, they can’t get any outside help. The son has been bitten by a dog and is not able to turn on the light of the lighthouse. There is a ship approaching the rocks which is in danger of crashing – and then this all cumulates into a moment at the end.”
