The Answer To Everything is a 70-minute interactive film and live opera event set in a conference run by fictional property developer Locateco SolutionsTM.

At first the delegates are united and corporate confidence appears sky-high, but as music gradually engulfs the business rhetoric, they begin to question whether their radical re-homing solution really is ‘the answer to everything’.

Moving between stage and screen, 30 performers will invite the audience to take part as conference delegates from the moment they collect their lanyard and conference pack through to joining in with the Company Anthem.

Film director Rupert Jones, opera director Emma Bernard and film producer Jess Gormley have brought together Streetwise’s homeless and ex-homeless performers with professionals including world-renowned soprano Elizabeth Watts to create a ground-breaking film opera. Our 10th anniversary production includes pieces by Britten, Handel and Vivaldi, and new commissions by some of the most the UK's most exciting composers: Gavin Bryars, Orlando Gough, Emily Hall, Anna Meredith and Duncan Ward.
