WNO presents world première of short film

25 June 2013

WNO will present the world première of short film, I Had an Angel, in Birmingham next week. The film, which is performed by soloists Owen Webb, Kate Woolveridge and Claire Groom, a community chorus and Welsh National Opera Orchestra, is inspired by the people and stories at The Ridings Dementia Care Home and Brays Special School in Birmingham.

I Had an Angel tells the story of two care workers who 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?

We want to know, if you had only 30 minutes and one box, which of your prized possessions would you take? Which items sum up your life? Let us know @WNOtweet using #wnoangel.
