Mad Songs


Bethlem Hospital in London is Europe’s oldest psychiatric institution. Through the centuries, it took on iconic proportions. “Bedlam” became a symbol of madness and melancholy, its inhabitants featuring in many songs by Purcell, Blow and their contemporaries. It is to those mad songs that the ensemble Tictactus pays homage in a richly variegated programme.
