Opera North Children's Chorus 2020 / 21
The upcoming theme for Opera North Children’s Chorus will look at different cultures and music, and at what makes people feel more connected when they are locked down and isolated.
The accompanying artists will be singer/songwriter Christella Litras and director Gitika Buttoo. Christella is a singer/songwriter who spent 10 years based in Trinidad and has a strong interest in African/Caribbean music and its connection to hip hop and reggae. She was part of Opera North’s Resonance residency programme in 2018, and has just finished a project with Leeds Playhouse. Gitika is a British Indian Theatre Director from Yorkshire. She won the JMK Trust Bursary 2017 and has worked with Leeds Playhouse, The Octagon Theatre, Birmingham Opera Company, CAST and the National Theatre.
