Lost in Music is a gig-theatre show inspired by the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice: the story of a talented musical couple’s journey to hell and back.

It’s a tale about the power of music which has been told and retold for thousands of years; in Lost in Music , it’s told using the voices of young musicians, telling us what music means to them and how it informs their lives, friendships and sense of self.

Lost in Music is performed by a multi-talented ensemble including Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells, Alex Rex) and Jill O’Sullivan (Sparrow and the Workshop, Jill Lorean, Bdy_Prts).

The production’s mix of musical and theatrical elements creates what Joyce McMillan in The Scotsman called “a unique theatrical experience”. The show combines live and pre-recorded music, spoken storytelling, and microcinema.

    "Moore’s music is tremendous, as are the individual songs, co-written by the four performing musicians, Jill O’Sullivan, Alex Neilson, Clare Willoughby and Emily Phillips; and the show is bound together by Nicholas Bone’s simple and beautiful text, which tells an old story, and links it to a new one with a depth of feeling that makes for a unique theatrical experience, as beautiful as it is moving."

    The Scotsman

    "Nicholas Bone’s Magnetic North company’s album-length rendition of this classic yarn pitches the story through a suite of songs written and performed by an ad hoc quartet of some of Scotland’s most adventurous musicians overseen by musical director Kim Moore."
