Hopes & Fears

I was delighted to be asked by The Opera Makers to work on the production photos for a new opera, Hopes & Fears. Based on music by Debussy and with a new libretto prepared by Becca Marriott, it tells the story of two different women living with cancer and is punctuated by the voices of others who’ve received a cancer diagnosis. Difficult subject matter to be sure, but beautifully put together by director Jorge Balça, musical director Panaretos Kyriatzidis and producers Dominic Mattos and Imogen Burgess.

The venue was Arcola Outside in Camden – you can see more production photos on their website.

The show was also featured on BBC News – the video is here.
