Northern Ireland Opera has commissioned a new teen/young adult opera which is being created in collaboration with campaign groups led by young people experiencing housing stress across Northern Ireland.

The opera, by librettist Fionnuala Kennedy and composer Neil Martin, will be performed by Northern Ireland Opera and the Ulster Youth Orchestra in 2022 with workshop versions of the piece being performed at the Belfast Children’s Festival in 2022. This new commission is supported through the Arts Council’s Stability and Renewal Programme for Organisations.
