Re:sound – review


For 20 years, Streetwise Opera has brought together people who have experienced homelessness, helping in the rebuilding of lives through creativity and singing. In the company’s latest endeavour, the cities of London, Manchester and Nottingham unite under the heading Re:sound. Nine micro-operas, written by composers in collaboration with Streetwise members, with full orchestra and catchy, jazz ballad-inspired choruses, explore every aspect of city life, from a bus ride in London to meeting under the station clock in Nottingham to the aquatic pleasures – including rain – of Manchester.
