Our 2013 family opera was Antiphony, which was performed previously by NCFO in 2002 and 2006 (click for a synopsis with audio and video clips respectively). Music by Graham Preskett, book and lyrics by John Kane. This is the same team that wrote our 2012 family opera, Flying High.
Antiphony is an uplifting, inspirational, and funny show for the whole family featuring some industrious ants, a scheming fly, and a fiddling grasshopper who all have a lot to learn about what makes life worth living. The opera is full of catchy tunes written in a variety of accessible musical styles. It was commissioned by the W11 Opera for Young People and performed by them in December 1994 and December 2005.
