The world is my song

Manchester Art Gallery
Mosley Street, Manchester M2 3JL
Thursday 19 July, 6pm - 7pm

FREE, no tickets required

The beauty of African American spirituals, the powerful drama of opera and musicals, and the raw passion of Streetwise Opera come together to celebrate the power of art to change the world, in a performance inspired by the Speech Acts exhibition at Manchester Art Gallery.

The performance will include the traditional spirituals 'Soon I will be done with the troubles of the world' and 'Steal Away', as well as music from Gioachino Rossini's opera Moses in Egypt, Stephen Sondheim's musical Sunday in the Park with George, and original music created by participants in Streetwise Opera's workshops in Manchester.
