A taste of flight: a journey through Leonardo’s mind

Tuesday 30 July 2019 - 2:30pm and 3:30pm

The Queen's Gallery 
Buckingham Palace, London SW1A 1AA

To attend this performance, you must book a ticket to the exhibition Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing

Streetwise Opera celebrates the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, with a performance that takes inspiration from the Italian artist's life-long pursuit to overcome the limitations of human beings through curiosity, creativity and imagination.

The programme includes music from Eric Whitacre's Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine, and short pieces devised by participants in Streetwise Opera's weekly workshops at The Connection At St Martin's in London.

This is a great opportunity to listen to music about Leonardo, while surrouned by some of his most celebrated drawings.

Streewise Opera performers have been working over several weeks with – and will sing alongside – participants in the The Sixteen's Genesis Sixteen young artists’ scheme, which aims to nurture the next generation of talented ensemble singers.

This same programme will be performed on Saturday 20 July 2019, 1:00pm, at St Clement Danes Church in London.
