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.

“Mary freed the dragons and the dragons freed her..”
