About the Show/Event

Information for Migrations at Mayflower Theatre, Southampton (Opera or Operetta). Since the beginning of time nature has migrated effortlessly, but when it comes to the human race it always seems more complicated. Through a series of six stories, by six writers from diverse backgrounds, Welsh National Opera explores migration from multiple angles: from the migration of birds to the sailing of The Mayflower 400 years ago; from the story of an Afro-Caribbean slave in Bristol to the experience of Indian doctors working in the NHS. Migrations is a hugely ambitious new opera by British composer Will Todd. An expanded WNO Orchestra is joined by a cast of 100 performers, including a gospel choir, Bollywood dancers and a children's chorus. Sung in English with surtitles in English (and Welsh in some venues)
Approximate runtime 2 hours 20 minutes (including any interval).
