Just like an organisation from London who is giving around 100 former homeless people the chance to star in an opera – whether front- or backstage.
The artists come from London, Nottingham and Manchester. Each performance comprises 9 parts, co-written during creative workshops by people with experience of living on the streets.
Performances take place in front of an animated backdrop and feature music from a well-known orchestra.
The initiative aims to help performers – as well as those in the audience with similar experiences – rediscover their voice.
Additional goals: to make society reflect on homelessness and promote social inclusion.
Former prison inmates likewise deserve a second chance.
