People Watch Premiere

Stef’s opera ‘People Watch’, written for Streetwise Opera with librettist Bill Bankes-Jones, premiered this summer on the opening night at Tête-à-Tête opera festival. The performers, most of whom have experienced homelessness, absolutely triumphed, provoking both laughter and tears among the sold-out crowd. Critics praised the piece for its “rousing chorus of hope” (The Stage), “stunning works of composition” (The Big Issue), and “Celtic harmonies” with “shivering, spiky string effects” (Bachtrack).
