Streetwise Opera Nottingham performs the world premiere of 'The Door', an opera chorus composed by our Nottingham Composer in Residence, Alex Patterson.

The new composition is inspired by Benjamin Britten’s Canticles, which was Streetwise Opera’s inaugural production in 2002. Alex was one of five Streetwise Opera Composers in Residence who composed a chorus inspired by Britten’s work with lyrics by our performers. The performance took place as part of our Nottingham Opera Hour at the Nottingham Playhouse on 2 March 2017.
