The Extraordinary Adventures of You and Me

Writer & Director English Touring Opera 2020

An interactive opera created for SEND schools, created in collaboration with The National Star College. When Mackenzie gets distracted on a trip to the museum, they journey through space and time to find themselves somewhere very different indeed. Yet, through the power of imagination and the help of some unusual friends, they unlock a way for everyone to head out of the classroom and discover a brand new type of learning adventure. 


Music: Omar Sharyar | Design: Kate Lane | Movement/Assistant Direction: Rebecca Meltzer 

Fairy Queen — Purcell 

Writer & Director Waterperry Opera Festival 2019

A reimagining of Purcell’s Fairy Queen exploring the folklore origins of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights dream. Weaving a new narrative around the fairies and their relationship with the natural world, this production combined the enchanting music of Purcell’s masque, and the natural magic of outdoor theatre-making.
