Different

A new opera for SEND audiences.

Different is a brand new opera for SEND audiences created by Key Club (a group of young adults with high functioning autism or asperger’s syndrome), composer Llywelyn ap Myrddin, designer Ruth Paton, and director Tim Yealland. The opera is performed by singers Eleanor Ross, Jan Capinski and Maciek O’Shea, cellist Jon Kitchen and trumpeter Ruth Ross. The piece travels to SEND schools and to small venues across the UK in the spring of 2017.

Romek and Tomek are Polish twins camping with their dog Peaches in the woods. A stranger – Alona – arrives, hungry and hunting for biscuits. Alona is so organised and competent the men are frightened of her, and when a storm breaks won’t allow her into their tents. Finally, and after the dog has had puppies, the stranger herself is in desperate need of help. The opera is fun, colourful, stimulating and participatory. It is suitable for young people with a wide variety of learning and physical needs.

Different builds on ETO’s many successful operas for special needs audiences. RedBlueGreen, Spin, Rumbled, Waxwings and Dust Child have been seen by audiences in schools in most of ETO’s touring venues. Interactive, stimulating and participatory, the operas are created to be enjoyed by young people of every ability.

Key Club is run by Turtle Key Arts, one of principle ETO’s long-term partners.

In June 2017 the opera tours to the Philharmonie in Luxembourg for 11 performances. This is our seventh visit to the Philharmonie, at the invitation of Fondation EME, and we are delighted to be returning.

If you are interested in booking the opera please contact Daniel Coelho or call 020 7833 2555.
