Another opera crowd-funding campaign, this time to support Opera in Space whose production of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas is being revived at Kings Place later this month (19, 20 December 2014). The crowdfunding is to enable to company to offer free tickets to disadvantaged people in London. They have a target of £2,000 which will enable them to offer freebies to the homeless, ex-offenders, refugee groups, long-term unemployed and residents of care homes.

The company specialises in performing opera in unusual spaces and their production of Dido and Aeneas was originally performed at the CLA Art Cafe/Bussy Building in Peckham. The production is directed by Richard Pyros with musical direction from Jean-Sébastien Beauvais and movement direction from Konstantinos Thomaidis. The strong young cast includes Stephanie Marshall, Robyn Allegra Parton, Huw Montague-Rendall and Sylvie Gallant.

You can see video trailer after the break:
