Composer Tim Benjamin has written a new work, Herakles, premiered by Todmorden Choral Society and Todmorden Orchestra.  Herakles is based on the story of the “Choice of Herakles” as re-told by Dio Chrysostom in his Discourse on Kingship, delivered to the new Roman Emperor Trajan in 98CE.

The musical drama will be performed by Todmorden Choral Society and Todmorden Orchestra together with a cast of professional soloists at the premiere in Todmorden on 30 April 2017, with a further presentation in Leeds on 8 July 2017. Rehearsals began in January 2017 and further updates on progress will appear in the News section of this website.
