Genesis Sixteen partners with Streetwise Opera for performance of After Winter, July 2020

28 November 2019

The Sixteen’s young artists’ programme Genesis Sixteen will continue its association with opera company and homeless charity Streetwise Opera with three performances of After Winter, based on Schubert’s Winterreise, in July 2020. Performing After Winter with Genesis Sixteen will be baritone Roderick Williams OBE, pianist Christopher Glynn, the Brodsky Quartet and the Ryedale Community Chorus led by Em Whitfield Brooks.

Harry Christophers, Founder and Conductor of The Sixteen, said:

What an honour to be continuing our partnership with Streetwise Opera and to be involved in their brilliant and important work. Our collaboration on The Passion in 2016 was quite simply life-changing for all of us involved in the project. As a result, we made a firm resolution to always keep in touch with Streetwise and we were delighted to be involved in Celebrating Leonardo da Vinci at Sounds Sublime last year. I am therefore so excited that singers from our Genesis Sixteen programme will get the opportunity to have this experience with After Winter.

The production will be staged at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 July 2020 and Ryedale Festival on Sunday 12 July, directed by John Fulljames, Artistic Director of the Royal Danish Opera, conducted by Streetwise Opera’s Artistic Director, Hannah Conway, and with design by Anna Robinson.

Tickets will go on sale in March 2020 on the Middlesbrough Town Hall and Ryedale Festival websites.
