Time With People @ City Summer Sounds

Time With People @ City Summer Sounds

Edges presents the London premiere of English composer Tim Parkinson's opera, Time With People, with the same production featured in its sold out performance at hcmf.

Sounds, silences, movements, objects, soloists, chorus; these elements are isolated, intermingled and intensified to confound and concentrate our sense of how they function within and outside of the work itself, which is - following tradition - a collection of works: an opera.

Admission Price: Free to attend, please book your place
