World premiere of new chamber opera by TL teacherFri 1 April 2022
Take Care by piano professor Douglas Finch celebrates the remarkable work of carers
Trinity Laban piano professor and curator of New Lights Festival Douglas Finch has penned a brand-new chamber opera with librettist Cindy Oswin.
Telling the story of carer Katie’s and her clients, Take Care is based on extensive research into the working lives of those who care for people with dementia and features a chorus of twelve carers from the local community in Nottingham.
The elegant and direct narrative is supported by a complex yet accessible and empathetic score by Finch that has stylistic references ranging from Vaudeville to Wagner.
Take Care is supported by Arts Council/National Lottery and the ESRC Impact Accelerator Fund.
