As a charity with wellbeing and social inclusion at its heart, we will continue to support Streetwise Opera performers.

“Streetwise Opera combines social purpose with serious artistic endeavor, collaborating with major figures from the music world. The results are almost always powerful, moving and productive, illuminating the material in ways that a professional performance might not.”
