2019 finalist Alice Theobald launches opera and exhibition

The View From Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis, a bold and ambitious immersive live work and exhibition by Ravioli Me Away (Sian Dorrer, Rosie Ridgway and Alice Theobald).

The View From Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis transforms Wysing’s gallery in its entirety into a multimedia exhibition that includes new sculptural works and costumes alongside a three-screen video installation. Gallery visitors will be able to engage with the objects and costumes which relate to the characters and themes of the opera.

The View From Behind The Futuristic Rose Trellis is a colourful, comi-tragic take on individual and collective aspiration, explored and expressed through a genre-diverse score and the ever-present voice of The Narrator, a soprano singer situated amidst the audience.

Ravioli Me Away have been in-residence at Wysing across the past year developing the work, alongside a large number of collaborators, in the Wysing Polyphonic recording studio and through public workshops. To accompany the exhibition and opera, a limited-edition vinyl record of the soundtrack, with an accompanying songbook, will be release.
