Ghost Opera

Award-winning Fellswoop Theatre present Ghost Opera; a mesmeric two-hander, spoken and sung, accompanied by a string quartet and devised in development with The Lowry and The Tobacco Factory Theatres.

Two strangers, both haunted by living ghosts in their everyday: one, her dying mother, and the other, his celebrity idol. Escaping to seek refuge at a spa retreat, the thirty year-old woman and the seventeen year-old boy meet, and together they try to resist becoming that which haunts them.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.
