Youth and Community

Welsh National Opera present the world première of the new WNO short film, I Had an Angel, performed by soloists Owen Webb, Kate Woolveridge and Claire Groom, a community chorus and Welsh National Opera Orchestra.

Inspired by the people and stories at The Ridings Dementia Care Home and Brays Special School in Birmingham.

Two care workers have 30 minutes to fill a box with significant objects that will accompany a new resident to their care home. How to know which objects to take? Can you really fit a life into one box? Taking place in real time, Welsh National Opera’s thought-provoking and beautiful world première asks these questions.
