Backed by Manchester Camerata, Antony and the Johnsons appeared at the Opera House for two extraordinary evenings of son et lumière at MIF09. Performing within a crystal cave and illuminated by a dazzling light display created by designer Paul Normandale, Anohni (formerly Antony) was a captivating presence, with Camerata providing beautiful support on songs from The Crying Light and I Am a Bird Now.
