About this production

Streetwise performers shared songs of their countries of origin – lullabies from the Caribbean, Italian love songs, Polish folksongs, Irish national protest songs - and these songs were turned into a new opera set in an international summit. Streetwise Opera performers from four London homeless centres were joined by the exciting vocal ensemble The Shout.
