Goldfrapp Performing live with the RNCM String Orchestra

Goldfrapp has surely never sung better, every emotional inflection captured by the building’s pin-drop acoustics. Partly lit by the natural light coming through the stained-glass windows… the effect
is magical.

Luminous and lyrical, Alison Goldfrapp held packed houses spellbound for these world premiere performances of the new album Tales of Us. With the help of the RNCM’s string orchestra, magic was created as the ethereal sounds melted into the shadows of the Albert Hall; the encore, including some of the band’s uplifting classics, was accompanied by the RNCM’s choir.

Produced by Manchester International Festival.
