What will the sessions cover?
Sessions in Project One will look at lullabies from across the world, inspired by songs from northern based refugees, linking with the theme of displacement in Martinů’s opera, The Greek Passion.
Sessions in Project Two will take inspiration from Kurt Weill’s Opera, Street Scene, which is an exciting fusion of traditional European opera and American musical theatre. The group will create and sing new vocal music, as well as staging and filming a street scene in Newcastle with a director.
