Mary Anning – a community opera
The life and legacy of Mary Anning is to be celebrated in a new opera, created by a team of professional artists for the communities of West Dorset and East Devon to perform.
Mary Anning – celebrating her life and legacy
A team of arts professionals have come together to create a community opera for West Dorset and East Devon.
The non-professional forces that will eventually be required are: solo voices for the main character roles, 3 choruses (a main chorus, a shanty chorus and a childrens’ chorus). The work will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra of 14 players.
There will be a diversity of opportunity to get involved in our opera, either through singing or dancing, designing and making sets or costumes, or helping backstage.
