Song in Sign

Horizontal blue, purple and green wavy patterns, repeated in a number of rows

Two opera singers, a pianist and two signing actors join forces to create a joyous merging of Song and Sign.

Be transported to a New Zealand forest in Dame Gillian Whitehead’s Awa Herea (meaning 'Braided Rivers'), bask in the gorgeous music of Richard Strauss and Duparc before smiling through tears in the world premiere of a new take on Oscar Wilde’s famous story, The Happy Prince by Rylan Gleave (composer) and Max Chase (librettist).

About formidAbility

formidAbility produces opera that places accessibility at the foundation of the creative process, rather than adding it as an afterthought. We collaborate with the world’s foremost artists working for or with disability, because we believe that audiences miss out on a world of great art when artists, creators and performers with disabilities are missing from professional performance spaces.

This staged concert is a fully integrated signed song performance. It is audio described and captioned throughout.
