I Went To The House But Did Not Enter is a staged concert in three tableaux composed by Heiner Goebbels and performed by the world-famous Hilliard Ensemble.

The tableaux are dedicated to four key 20th century literary texts by T S Eliot, Maurice Blanchot, Franz Kafka and Samuel Beckett. Although very different, each text focuses on a fragmented and anonymous protagonist, an anti-hero wo embarks on a journey to everywhere and nowhere. Four singers bring each story vividly to life.
