Wilton's Music Hall
Incorporating folk and Creole influences, Cabildo is the only opera from pioneering composer Amy Beach, written in 1932 and not performed until after her death. Beach's repertoire and article 'To the Girl Who Wants to Compose' have inspired women in music for over a century.
In this production, Cabildo is thrillingly re-conceived for the present to uncover the dark underside of the American Dream. It asks, can we ever memorialise the past without bringing back the things we would rather not remember?
September 7th-11th, 7.45pm, GMT.

Emma and Aneesha Srinivasan (co-ADs of Global Origins) will host REROUTED: a digital discussion group for international plays and performances in partnership with the Gate Theatre. REROUTED will be a free, open-access series of webinars. Each session will feature a different playtext, film or performance to be chosen, introduced and discussed by brilliant guest practitioners.
Through the discussions we will aim to expand our lens on global art and create a more diverse, decolonised and inclusive industry by considering non-British modes of performance.
First session April 21th, 6-8pm GMT.
