Over the lockdown, our Artistic Director Scott Stroman composed a new opera with librettist Tamsin Collison to bring to life Michael Palin's play The Weekend.
We received Arts Council funding to stage the work. Over the lockdown in 2020, we teamed up with local choir Eclectic Voices, and a team of professional opera singers and
instrumentalists, to record the work at Milton Court on Thursday 17th December.
Highbury Opera Theatre have produced an online interactive music and drama workshop in partnership with Music Education Islington for teenagers to take part in at school during Covid-19 lockdown
or at home with their family and friends. Click below to explore what it takes to put on an opera and learn musical footage from HOT'S 2017 production Fever Pitch the opera.
