Streetwise Opera's Nottingham Explore Group rehearses a new opera chorus composed by our Nottingham Composer in Residence, Alex Patterson. 

The new composition is inspired by Benjamin Britten’s Canticles, which was Streetwise Opera’s inaugural production in 2002. Alex is one of five Streetwise Opera Composers in Residence who are composing a chorus inspired by Britten’s work with lyrics by our performers.

The world premiere of the new chorus will be at the Nottingham Playhouse on 2 March 2017.
