Opera Anywhere's mission is to bring live musical performance into the community. As part of this, they are dedicated to restoring Opera to its place as a popular entertainment of the day.

Opera is often staged in modern dress. This production goes further, updating the story and rewriting the language into modern day speech; updating the context such that behaviour and relationships, which were real in the 18th Century, become believable and understandable in the very different society of today.

The aim of this is to familiarise a genre which, for many people, is seen as inaccessible and alien and to open it up to the widest possible audience. Familiarity, characters we can relate to and empathise with, wit, word play, humour, racy action: in this way Opera stands a better chance of attracting audiences more used to film and television.

Reinventing a Classic work for today's audience: sublime music unadulterated, language and characters reborn of today.
