Fridays at One: formidAbility – Song in Sign

Two opera singers, a pianist and two signing actors join forces to create a feast for the senses in a joyous merging of Song and Sign. Be transported to a New Zealand forest in Dame Gillian Whitehead’s “Awa Herea” (meaning “Braided Rivers”), bask in the gorgeous music of Richard Strauss and Duparc before smiling through tears in the Scottish premiere of a new take on Oscar Wilde’s famous story, “The Happy Prince” by Rylan Gleave (composer) and Max Chase (librettist).

Our staged concert is BSL interpreted, audio described and captioned throughout.

formidAbility produces opera that places accessibility at the foundation of the creative process, rather than adding it as an afterthought. We collaborate with the world’s foremost artists working for or with disability, because we believe that audiences miss out on a world of great art when artists, creators and performers with disabilities are missing from professional performance spaces.

A Community Workshop will take place in the lead-up to this concert, date and time to be announced.
