Premiere of “Opera for the unknown woman” approaching
May 4, 2016 - News
With co-composer and director Melanie Wilson and “Fuel” company we are working on new production – “Opera for the Unknown Woman”
Opera for the Unknown Woman is a bold re-imagining of the operatic form, weaving together theatre, contemporary classical music, electronics and film. The talented ensemble includes Patricia Rozario OBE and Adey Grummet (Jerry Springer the Opera, Mr Burns).
This science fiction, multi-media opera channels a performance of vivid imagination and passionate politics into an exhilarating call to action.
