rough for opera is a performance platform for composers to share new work and opera in progress. 
Each event is a snapshot and celebration of contemporary opera making, with most work being brought from page to stage for the very first time. With an informal and intimate atmosphere and a Q and A following each performance rough for opera is a great way for audiences to engage directly with opera makers and for composers to get invaluable feedback about their work at an early stage in its development. 

Tuesday 7th March - 7:30pm
