Birdy

RADA Studios, London, WC1E 7EX
Sun 28th July 2019

An opera about obsessive fantasies, based on William Wharton’s debut novel. Al grew up with Birdy in a working-class neighbourhood. Al watches his best friend after the war as PTSD traps Birdy inside his own mind. His magical mind means that his fantasies become his reality. Flashback sequences of their youth help Birdy get back to reality, reveal his mysterious mind, and explore his fascination with all types of birds. Told through vocal lines based on canary song, and virtuosic physical theatre and trampolining.

Organised in collaboration with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute as part of the Polska Music programme

Music: Karol Nepelski

Produced by Warsaw Stage Society
