We were looking for a composer who should play a central role in developing our work which became the new opera work SHANGHAI. That led to an international Call for composer which was launched in 2015.
Please watch a short video of Stephen Langridge presenting the artistic starting point for the project here:
Why we’re collaborating
We enjoy working creatively across boundaries. We enjoy working with a mix of art-forms (entirely natural to opera) and with a mix of people with different levels of experience, different abilities and ways of expressing themselves. This work isn’t just enriching for the people who take part. We think it’s exciting and important in terms of our art-forms, artists, audiences and how these develop.
We want to engage a professional team who, under the leadership of director Stephen Langridge, will create a new opera work for an integrated cast. We plan to commission a work of approximately 1-hour for a mixed ensemble of singers and musicians from GöteborgsOperan and ShareMusic.
