The Passion of Streetwise Opera


This video features interviews with performers involved in Streetwise Opera’s forthcoming show ‘The Passion’ - a landmark site-specific production for Easter 2016 by Streetwise Opera and The Sixteen in association with HOME. This extraordinary new opera comprises Bach’s iconic oratorio St Matthew Passion and a new ‘resurrection’ finale which has been jointly written by Streetwise Opera’s performers and celebrated composer Sir James MacMillan. The production is directed by Penny Woolcock, an award-winning director working with a special interest in creating quality work with those who live on the margins.
