Streetwise Opera's Blue Shangri-La

Part of Stockhausen: Cosmic Prophet

In a pop-up performance inspired by colour, shape and texture, participants in Streetwise Opera's workshops respond to Stockhausen’s Donnerstag aus Licht.

In May, the opera was performed in the UK for the first time since 1985 at Royal Festival Hall.

Streetwise Opera performers and members of Red Hat Opera workshops explore the themes of Stockhausen’s monumental opera and find peace through music and creativity.

This performance is the result of devising, poetry and songwriting workshops facilitated by Streetwise Opera and Red Hat Opera.

Honouring the imagination and irreverence of visionary composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, the performance is a musical journey that aims to push the boundaries of opera.

Streetwise Opera is an award-winning performing arts charity for people who are or have been homeless.

It runs creative workshops in five regions across England including here in London and stages critically-acclaimed operas.

Streetwise Opera is one of Southbank Centre’s Creative Learning Partners.
