Featuring performances of traditional folk song from Scottish folk musician Alasdair Roberts, inspired by Samuel Beckett’s extraordinary monologue, Krapp’s Last Tape. This experience can be enjoyed either alongside the original piece or independently.

Reflections on Krapp’s Last Tape is part of Connecting Voices, a collaboration between Leeds Playhouse and Opera North bringing together a collection of new and classic work celebrating the power of the human voice.
