My Secret Heart

Posted by outpostmedia on Nov. 18, 2008

A taster video of the forthcoming debut launch of this amazing operatic performance which is taking place at the Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday 3rd December 2008. My Secret Heart is a new commission by Streetwise Opera (www.streetwiseopera.org) of a music and film installation written by electronic composer and Warp artist Mira Calix, video artists Flat-e and sound designer Dave Sheppard. The have worked with around 80-100 Streetwise performers from across the UK to create a unique work that will be shown around the world. The new piece is inspired by the Allegri’s 17th-century choral work Miserere Mei, a piece so protected by the Vatican that they put an embargo on it. Mira Calix and Flat-e have used the theme of secrecy to explore movements and singing with Streetwise’s participants to create this new century-leaping work. The installation will also tour to galleries and festivals across the world through 2009.
