Alex Roose in rehearsal for P’opera
P’opera brings opera, the story teller, back to the street, allowing this profound expression of human emotion to magnify our everyday joys and sorrows.
The music is well-loved and familiar - the stories are our own. We follow singers through shopping arcades, are serenaded from balconies, in coffee queues and while waiting for the bus, and are swept up into the musical and emotional momentum of their stories. P’opera culminates in one glorious coming together of song before the protagonists go their separate ways.
P’opera is being created by Various People Inc with assistance from Arts South Australia, Chamber Music Adelaide, the City of Adelaide and Adelaide Arcade management..
