We welcome audiences to attend the premiere of this contemporary opera with music by Jonathan Graham and libretto by Nigel Gibbons. The opera is set in current times, sung in English and classical in style. It will be performed with an orchestra under the experienced direction of Kate Wishart who regularly directs The Peterborough Opera and Oundle Gilbert and Sullivan locally.
The story follows the fortunes of a gang of East European migrant vegetable pickers on a remote farmland in the Fens, Lincolnshire. One of the pickers falls in love with a local English farm worker that leads to the death of the gang master revealing long hidden secrets from the past.
