Streetwise Opera Middlesbrough performs the world premiere of 'The Flower Seed', an opera chorus composed by our Middlesbrough Composer in Residence, Bushra El-Turk.

The new composition is inspired by Benjamin Britten’s Canticles, which was Streetwise Opera’s inaugural production in 2002. Bushra 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 Middlesbrough Opera Hour at Middlesbrough Central Library on 16 March 2017.
