Birdy

An opera about obsessive fantasies, based on William Wharton’s debut novel.

Al grew up with Birdy in a working-class neighbourhood. Al watches his best friend after the war as PTSD traps Birdy inside his own mind. His magical mind means that his fantasies become his reality. Flashback sequences of their youth help Birdy get back to reality, reveal his mysterious mind, and explore his fascination with all types of birds. Told through vocal lines based on <g class=”gr_ gr_20 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_disable_anim_appear Grammar only-ins doubleReplace replaceWithoutSep” id=”20″ data-gr-id=”20″>canary</g> song, and virtuosic physical theatre and trampolining.
