The Prometheus Revolution – Fulham Opera at Grimeborn Festival

Caroline Carragher’s Wona is outstanding

I have to commend the cast, all of whom gave sterling performances. Each singer had their own moment or moments, and there were a lot of notes. Everyone really committed themselves to the performance and to the piece, and their support for new opera is admirable.

Delighted with the press comments coming in about our world premiere – more info here!

The Prometheus Revolution – World Premiere 7 – 10 August 2018

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Thrilled to say I’ll be creating the role of Wona in Keith Burstein’s The Prometheus Revolution with Fulham Opera, which will be performed as part of the Grimeborn Festival in August. Sophie Gilpin directs and Ben Woodward is the M.D.

Star-crossed lovers, rebellion and revolution against the backdrop of a corrupt political class. What would you sacrifice for lasting peace?
Keith Burstein’s new opera is a ravishing vision of our society crossing beyond the threshold of war towards a new age of peace and mutual respect.
The activists within a peace movement find themselves playing out the eternal myth of Prometheus, who took the fire from the Gods to give it to the mortals. But they too may pay a high price for their audacity…
Shot through with pathos and ironic humour, this dark parable is laced with the sounds of vaudeville, Broadway musical and pop ballads.
In the centenary year of the end of World War 1, Fulham Opera present a melodic and intensely lyrical new opera of passion, power and high emotion, presenting a radical and challenging evocation of the moment Humanity takes charge of the world.

Booking opens today! June 22nd – and tickets can be booked via the Arcola Theatre here:

The Art of Change: The Reckoning

The Art Of Change Beyond excited to be part of the team for The Reckoning with The Art Of Change team!

Where:
We are going to be travelling across the country, visiting Liverpool, Manchester, Leicester, Sheffield and London. But before we go on tour we are doing a workshop of the production at the Iris Theatre in Covent Garden on May 4th. This will give us the space to rehearse the production and figure out if anything needs changing. We then hope to be able to reach even more venues once we have some images and photos from the workshop performance.

Your Support:
Your support will ensure that we are able to get the first phase of workshops off the ground. Your donation will help to fund, but not exclusive to: set/props, costume, stage manager, song composition, designer, and rehearsal venue. (Don’t forget the tea & biscuits!)

If you can help support us in this project, we’d be so grateful. We’ve got a fundraising page here – any assistance is hugely appreciated!

The Art of Change, launched in 2017, is a dynamic team of artists and project managers who are committed to bringing life to the often-neglected medium of art song. We use art song to bring a new perspective to current and historical socio-political events.
The Reckoning:
Our new political play THE RECKONING, written by Lila Palmer, combines dialogue with existing art songs, folk songs, and newly written songs, by composers Eve Harrison and Ella Jarman-Pinto. The piece covers three historic eras through the eyes of four women: the leveller Elizabeth Lilburne, the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, and two fictional modern MPs, interweaving their stories to explore how the voices of women have been heard over time. ​
