ID, Please performed at Tête à Tête

I am delighted to announce that ID, Please, my new opera about immigration and borders with a libretto by Daniel Hirsch, will receive its London 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.

ID, Please is gratefully funded by Carnegie Mellon University, Arts Council England and Iran Heritage Foundation. Soosan Lolavar is supported by PRS for Music Foundation’s Women Make Music.
