Streetwise Opera respond to the stylised and empowering works of artist Hassan Hajjaj through the lens of Mozart’s classic opera in search of truth, love and enlightenment, The Magic Flute.

During a series of artist talks and creative afternoons, participants in Streetwise Opera’s workshops at Theatre Royal Concert Hall and Emmanuel House Support Centre in Nottingham explore ‘The Path’ at New Art Exchange, which presents the work of Moroccan born, London based artist Hassan Hajjaj in ‘a unique and timely consideration of culture and identity in the modern globalized world’.

Inspired by the transformative qualities of the photographic series ‘Dakka Marrakchia’, which depicts vibrant cinematic portraits of chic biker girls who playfully challenge western preconceptions of Arabic society and the vivid magnification of British cultural identities presented in ‘My Rock Stars’.

Streetwise Opera invites you into a world where nothing is as it first appears and where hyper-realities collide. Meet the Queen of the Night, The Priest of the Sun and Prince Tamino as you have never seen them before.

Join us in the Main Gallery, New Art Exchange, a contemporary arts space stimulating new perspectives on the value of diversity in art and society.

This pop-up performance starts at 2:00pm. Duration: 15 minutes
