Forgotten Voices is an ongoing project, sourcing and celebrating the extraordinary music composed by women over the last 180 years. Working in association with HERA, we put together a programme of over eighty songs and arias recorded by 50 students from the UK’s conservatoires and young artist programmes, and co-presented a lecture recital series with Oxford Lieder.
SWAP'RA INAUGURAL GALA
In July 2018, we held an historic event at Opera Holland Park, brought to life by over 150 female creatives from conductors and directors, to singers, orchestral players, repetiteurs and stage managers. Hosted by star of stage and screen Fiona Shaw, the SWAP'ra Gala was a celebration of the incredible wealth of female talent in the opera industry.
Following the success of our inaugural SWAP'ra Gala at Opera Holland Park in July 2018, we are working on a programme of regular showcases, which will feature female creatives and their work in well-known venues. This has been a goal of ours from the outset to provide performance opportunities and platforms for women and parents alike. More information will follow!
We are creating performance opportunities to promote the work of female creatives within the industry.
