What I care about

What I Care About is a captivating performance by the Streetwise Opera group in London and students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. 

This project was delivered during Trinity Laban’s COLAB, an eclectic two‑week festival of creativity and innovation that uses the arts to challenge people’s expectations and views of society.

Streetwise Opera performers in London worked for two weeks in February 2020 with Trinity Laban students to create an exciting new performance, inspired by the theme “What I care about” and music by Benjamin Britten.

The ‘opera miniature’ was performed at Blackheath Halls on Friday 21 February.

The project was led by director Karen Gillingham, baritone and animateur Robert Gildon and composer Hannah Conway, who is Artistic Director at Streetwise Opera.
