Eight Songs For A Mad King
So, here’s the thing…
We were approached with the brief that Shadwell Opera were performing a new work of what can only be described as ‘alternative’ opera. Eight increasingly dramatic and affecting songs delivered by baritone Nicholas Morris, under the artistic direction of Jack Furness and Finnegan Downie Dear, in a stunning London church.
Produced and directed by Chris in one afternoon, filming a live performance as it happens, this mini-documentary captures the essence of what Shadwell Opera stand for at the edges of operatic creativity.
