We are thrilled to join Mahogany Opera Group’sVarious Stages Festival as the resident ensemble. We’ll be workshopping and premiering a scene from Oliver Brignall’s new opera Palace of Junk, a multimedia retelling of the tragic tale of the Collyer brothers, an infamous pair of hoarders, and an exploration into hoarding disorder. We’ll also be performing in Christopher Cerrone, Stephanie Fleischmann and Brian Mertes’ In a Grove, an immersive opera inspired by a short story by Japanese author Ryūnosuke Akutagawa examining an incident of love torn by violence from multiple perspectives; and Calamity/Billy by Théâtre de la Croix-Rousse, Gavin Bryars, Ben Johnston and Michael Ondaatje, a double portrait of two iconic wild west heroes Billy the Kid and Calamity Jane that shows a different and more intimate side to the characters.
Date: Monday 15th June, 7pm Venue: The Cockpit Theatre, Marylebone
A chance to see a new chamber opera in the making. As part of Rough for Opera, a scratch night for new opera hosted and curated by Second Movement, four scenes from this new opera will be presented as a work-in-progress followed by a Q&A with audience feedback.
