ID, Please, my new opera about immigration and borders with a libretto by Daniel Hirsch, will receive its European premier as part of the 2017 Tête à Tête opera festival. It was previously premiered at Pittsburgh Opera in April 2017.
It will be performed on 25th July at The Place at 9:15pm and will be preceded by a free panel discussion at 6pm alongside Counterpoints Arts – an organisation promoting art by refugees and migrants – in which we will discuss the recent tide of xenophobia in the UK and ask what role the arts should play in responding to anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Tickets can be purchased here.
