Do you have a problem? Opera Helps.

February - May 2016

With Joshua Sofaer, Opera Coast, Colchester Arts Centre, Heart of Glass and Norfolk and Norwich Festival

Categories

Joshua Sofaer’s Opera Helps harnesses the power of opera to help participants view their troubles in a new light.

People apply with a problem. If their needs can be met, a professional opera singer visits their home and listens to the problem.

Then the singer selects the aria that relates to the problem. The aria is sung to the participant as they relax in their preferred room.

Opera Helps first took place in 2012 in Stockholm, Sweden, with Folkoperan. In 2016 it’s touring the UK for the first time, produced by Wunderbar.

Our touring partners are Colchester Arts Centre, Heart of Glass and Norfolk and Norwich Festival. Wunderbar is also hosting tour stops in north east England. We’ve been working with OperaCoast to find singers for the project.
