Presented by Shirley Apthorp (South Africa)

With a multi-layered, open-ended story set to a delicious mix of traditional South African and contemporary music and performed by world-class singers, this is opera that needs to be seen and heard. In spite of having minimal staging resources, the production was engaging and deeply moving. We thought the approach to the subject of LGBT+ rights would be of tremendous value for communities around the world. The company were brave and intelligent to perform in and amongst the teenage audience in the way that they did, symbolically placing the opera in and amongst society.
