The Cutlass Crew

The Price - W11 Opera in 2016
The Price - W11 Opera in 2016
W11 Opera for Young People produces an annual opera written specifically for young people to perform. This year they present the premiere of The Cutlass Crew, a new opera written specially for the company by Stuart Hancock, pehaps best known as a composer for films, and writer Donald Sturrock. The Cutlass Crew is being performed at POSK Theatre, Hammersmith on 9 & 10 December (with performances at 3.30pm and 7.00pm).

The Cutlass Crew is based on the true story of Lady Mary Killigrew who, in 1583, formed a Cutlass Crew of her female servants and sets sail to plunder as pirates. We are promised entertaining, swashbuckling fun for the whole family.

W11 Opera provides a unique opportunity for young people of all backgrounds and enjoys a strong community base. For many of its young participants, it is their first introduction to musical theatre of any kind. Last year they presented the premiere of Russell Hepplwhite's The Price (see my review).

Full details from the W11 Opera website.
