Barefoot Opera's new people's opera, in development

Our new ‘people’s opera’, composed by Orlando Gough and Stephen Plaice, inspired by life in the towns of the South Coast, began development in 2018. Workshops, rehearsals and other events also took place in March and April 2019, in Hastings, St. Leonards and Bexhill, building towards a performance of a 30-minute ‘extract’ of the opera on Sunday 28th April at the De La Warr Pavilion.

We are now working towards developing the full opera. Watch this space for information on funding, partnerships and how to take part!
