Ulla’s Odyssey: our Crowdfunder campaign

The next role I’m playing is in a delightful new opera called Ulla’s Odyssey, to have its world premiere at London’s Kings Place next month. Here is the brief from Opera Up Close’s Crowdfunder campaign:

The show is inspired by Homer’s Odyssey and uses five professional opera singers, live music and puppetry to tell Ulla’s story, which includes playful modern updates of Homer’s monsters. It is suitable for children aged 7+, families and any adult with a sense of fun and wonder.

This new opera was the winner of the 2014 Flourish competition, an annual opera writing competition run by OperaUpClose to find the hottest new composing talent emerging in the opera world. It has music by Anthony Young (from New Zealand) and words by Leanna Brodie (from Canada), so it is an international team!

Ulla’s Odyssey will run for four performances throughout October and November this year at the beautiful Kings Place in London, with plans underway to tour the production in Spring 2016 to theatres and schools around the UK.

We are an arts charity and receive no regular funding, therefore we rely heavily on our friends and theatre-loving public to help make our ideas a reality. So help us make Ulla’s Odyssey the magnificent adventure it deserves to be by donating towards our crowdfunding campaign!Ulla's Odyssey graphic
