Manchester International Festival organisers have released tickets for the first events announced for the 2009 biennial, including concerts featuring the music of Johann Sebastian Bach in a specially commissioned room to be created by international superstar architect Zaha Hadid.
Hadid's creation will be installed in one of the exhibition spaces in Manchester Art Gallery for nine performances in July next year. The structure will remain in place and free to view until September.
Hadid is known for her fluid designs and was nominated for this year's Stirling Prize for the Nord Park cable station in Innsbruck, pictured above.
