The opera invents a period in the life of the great German artist Kurt Schwitters, when he spent time in North London, immediately after the war. Man and Boy: Dada is the powerful story of the friendship that grows between a displaced Schwitters and Michael, a boy who has lost his father in a Doodlebug raid.
