The Opera House Next Door

Event Details

You sent in an array of exciting entries and we selected a local Access For All commission to programme within the festival.

Fat Lady Opera, Sparked Echo and The Mess Room presents The Opera House Next Door, led by artists: Tania Holland Williams, Wendy Daws, Liz Hayward and Christopher Sacre.

Heralding a new approach to staging contemporary opera, it is a part artist-designed interactive archaeological dig complete with tactile props, clues to discover and puzzles to solve. Expect a professional and exciting performance, complete with a voyage of operatic discovery. The production has a specific mandate to cater for people with visual impairment.

We are committed to ensuring that Paint the Town Festival provides performance and workshop opportunities that are accessible to as many people as possible. Medway Arts Development Team have kindly partnered with the Paint The Town Festival to co-commission this event.
