There’s conflict everywhere we look: from the people queuing for food who are judged by passersby, the photojournalist in Afghanistan whose job is impeded by armed forces, to the family that contemplate putting their mother in a care home.
But where there is conflict there can also be resolution. Join us at Nottingham Playhouse on 30 November for a bold operatic experience that explores, through dance and song, how individuals and communities can embrace dialogue and generosity to overcome anger and strife.
This performance, with music from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, includes fantastic new operatic pieces co-created by participants in our weekly singing and creative workshops at Nottingham Playhouse, led by musical director Tim Lole and choreographer Sophie Thorpe of Tom Dale Company.
Streetwise Opera is an arts organisation that uses singing and creativity to inspire and empower people recovering from homelessness. We run an exciting programme of performing arts projects in London, Manchester and Nottingham.
This event includes a screening of the short film Ruben – Why we sing.
The performance will be followed by an insight into the devising process and refreshments.
Duration: 30 minutes
