NZ Opera presents “The Strangest of Angels”
May 28 @ 8:00 pm
The Strangest of Angels – 28 May at The Piano
A new opera written by New Zealanders, about New Zealanders
A poignant and imaginative reflection on events during Janet Frame’s time at Seacliff Mental Hospital, The Strangest of Angels is a harrowing and hopeful experience that throws light on mental health then and now. Co-created by Kenneth Young, Anna Leese, and Georgia Jamieson Emms and Commissioned by Anna Leese, The Strangest of Angels is born of an exciting and conscious collaboration between composer and performers that explores the contrast between a calm, rational psychiatric patient and a traumatised nurse torn between empathy and the relative power of institutional duty.
