About The Show
The major commission in our 2018/19 season, Paradise Lost reunites the creative team behind last year’s critically acclaimed “Written in Fire” - Vessel, AKA composer and electronic musician Sebastian Gainsborough, and Rakhi Singh, Music Director of Manchester Collective.
One of the most enigmatic, disruptive, and exciting creative duos of their generation, Vessel and Singh have created a large scale original work for Manchester Collective, a magnum opus that draws together fractured and disparate music from their respective worlds.
Here, the sacred meets the profane, the acoustic clashes with the electronic, and some of the earliest classical music ever written is dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 21st century.



"Intimate, immersive musical experiences without parallel"- Bachtrack
"One of the most important ensembles currently bringing classical music to UK audiences"- Northern Soul


At The Door
As our concerts tend to sell out before the day of the show, we encourage all of our guests to buy tickets in advance. Any unsold tickets will be available for purchase on the door.




Manchester Collective
Manchester Collective is redefining how a new generation of audiences engage with the arts in the UK. Recently described by the Yorkshire Post as a "powerful, moving, & extraordinary" addition to the UK music scene, Manchester Collective produces world-class, innovative, and outward facing musical experiences for new audiences across Britain. Their thrilling live performances, allied with daring programming and a brazen approach to convention, have seen the Collective reach more than 200,000 people across their first two seasons.
In December 2017, Manchester Collective was appointed Ensemble in Residence at The Stoller Hall, a new flagship concert hall for Manchester. In 2018, Manchester Collective has been featured by publications including The Strad Magazine (twice), Bachtrack (“intimate, immersive experiences without parallel”), and Seen and Heard International (“an astonishing evening”). Classic FM and the BBC have also featured the work of the Collective on an ongoing basis, and in March 2018, MC presented a groundbreaking two hour classical broadcast on NTS Radio.
Recent performing highlights include concert debuts at Kings Place in London, a PRSF supported tour of the Collective’s latest major commission, 100 DEMONS, (featuring electronic musician Vessel, cellist and Radiohead collaborator Oliver Coates, and music by Daniel Elms), and a packed performance of Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time” in The Stoller Hall, broadcast live on Facebook to over 10,000 viewers.
