Spring 2023


A new opera for teen and young adult audiences


An exciting and powerful new opera created by composer Neil Martin and playwright Fionnuala Kennedy for and with teenagers and young adults around the issues of housing stress and homelessness some of the young people are facing.

We will be producing this new opera in Spring 2023, with the Ulster Youth Orchestra and a creative team which will include youth counterparts, putting young people in the driving seat to tell the story of their lived experience.  We are also creating workshops to accompany the production, suitable for school and youth groups.

More information coming soon.
