Songs For Our Age
Welsh National Opera – Sat 15 Aug 2009
Music: Richard Barnard.
Words: Karen Hayes
The writing and life experience of two different generations of Welsh valley residents have been bought together by asking “what is it like to get old?” and “What will it be like when I am old?” Older members of a residential home and the Kidz R Us Choir, supported by Welsh National Opera’s creative team have helped to develop Songs For Our Age. The essence of the Welsh valleys are beautifully captured, giving us a window into the lives of those often forgotten or unheard. Also to be performed privately at a local old people’s home.
