Streetwise Opera, the arts charity for people who are or have been homeless, wants an hour of your time. If you think you don't like opera, the the charity's new Opera Hours are intended to change minds, presenting opera's raw and authentic passion and epic emotions that can be found in everyday life.

The company will be performing scenes from operas by Puccini, Verdi, Gilbert and Sullivan, and others, presented in a spirit of boldness and fun by the performers. The Opera Hour series includes performances in Middlesbrough Town Hall (1/3/2019), Sage Gateshead (21/3/2019), Nottingham Trent University (21/3/2019), Southbank Centre (22/3/2019), Royal Northern College of Music (26/3/2019). All events are free to attend, and audiences may pay what they feel to support Streetwise Opera.

The performances will include the premieres of five choruses created Streetwise Opera’s Composers in Residence: Aurora Nishevci (London), Emily Levy (Manchester), Ian Stephenson (Newcastle and Gateshead), David Wilson (Nottingham) and Hayley Jenkins (Teesside).
