A mum’s perspective

Having now seen our latest show "Music & Mindfulness" 5 times (!), we asked Sheila Shotts, mother of our solo soprano Poppy, to say a few words about it… Watching "Music & Mindfulness" has introduced me to the life of Socrates and I wonder how I've got to my age without knowing more about this man. The storytelling in this production is magnificent but it's good to get there half an hour early to hear the introduction and seeing it more than once has been fantastic. It really leaves an impression!

Captured yeti to sing at Glasto

"Yes, indeed! Having braved the harsh Himalayas in entirely unsuitable wear, and returned in triumph with the world's only recorded yeti, our brave hunter and his tiny assistant head off to Glastonbury to display their unique find - some say the creature even sings!"

Cruel Britannia

Our wry look at Britain's past and present through street-opera took to the streets on 29th & 30th March 2019. Find out more about it here

Music & Mindfulness

Exciting times ahead as we prepare for this beauty on tour in June 2019. Contact us if you'd like it to come to your city's church or meditation spaces.

It’s cast!

Bass & Coloratura Soprano on board. We're delighted to welcome soprano Zerrin Karsli and bass-baritone Neil Balfour to our March event, Cruel Britannia. Performances are 29th/30th March in and around central Hull.

Brrrrrrrr…

Man, it was cold. But still great feedback from audiences for our Opera Favourites event on 14 December inside Scale Lane Bridge. The audience chose from a selection of rep offered and performed by Poppy Shotts, Beth Mackay, Alex Grainger and Eugene Dillon-Hooper. See page for more.

Music for inspiration

Director Russell Plows and soprano Poppy Shotts discuss Satie’s “Socrates” with Jerome Whittingham – includes an extract from Scene 3 with Caroline Blair, piano.

Enjoy!
