Meet Alex Patterson, Streetwise Opera Composer in Residence for Nottingham (2016-17). Alex is working with Streetwise Opera’s performers to create a new 3-5 minute chorus inspired by Britten's canticle, ‘The death of St. Narcissus’. His new composition will also be performed at a Nottingham Opera Hour in spring 2017.
