Opera for the hearing - hard of hearing - and deaf

A Quiet Life

Whittaker has just seen a tweet about this project, which involves making an opera for people who can’t hear – and people who can:- 

"Annie is an astronomer. She knows all about time and space, but she isn’t so sure about life and death. And she’s just gone deaf. 'A Quiet Life' is a new, multi-sensory opera based on the life of Annie Jump Cannon, exploring ways of hearing and the relationship between the Universe and ourselves. An opera for people who can hear and people who can’t."
