Homeless people take over the Royal Opera House as part of the London 2012 Festival
Award-winning charity Streetwise Opera will present a one-night special event at the Royal Opera House to showcase the skills of 300 performers, both from the UK and abroad, who have experienced homelessness. The event, ‘With One Voice’ is part of the London 2012 Festival, the spectacular 12-week nationwide celebration running from 21 June until 9 September 2012 bringing together leading artists from across the world with the very best from the UK. It will be the first time in history that homeless people have been given an official platform at celebrations for an Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The project is supported under our Maximising Social and Cultural Value theme.
