Streetwise Opera Newcastle/Gateshead performs the world premiere of 'The Light', an opera chorus composed by our Newcastle/Gateshead Composer in Residence, Ella Jarman-Pinto.

The new composition is inspired by Benjamin Britten’s Canticles, Ella 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 Newcastle/Gateshead Opera Hour at the Gosforth Civic Theatre on 9 March 2017.
