Tina has never been in love. Now she’s the bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding and can’t move for relatives asking: ‘When is it going to be you?’. But Tina insists she’s better off on her own. If you haven’t got love, you can’t lose it, right? Yet as the wedding day unfolds, her determination not to let anyone in starts to falter…

Streetwise Opera and Royal Northern Sinfonia present Tell Me The Truth About Love, a Tyneside #LoveOpera, featuring a range of classical, folk and modern music: from Mozart to Stevie Wonder, including Geordie favourites Big River,Blaydon Races and The Water of Tyne.

This lively music experience will make you laugh, sing along and shed a tear or two, as we celebrate 100 years of life and love on Tyneside.

The opera takes its title from one of Benjamin Britten’s Cabaret Songs, and includes new music by Will Todd and Anna Appleby. The world premiere is directed by Olivier Award winner Bijan Sheibani and designed by Linbury Prize winner Samal Blak, with story and text by Meriel Sheibani-Clare, and additional text by Streetwise Opera performers.

Tell Me The Truth About Love will be performed by adults from Streetwise Opera Newcastle Gateshead who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness, with critically-acclaimed mezzo-soprano Anna Huntley as Tina, and musicians from Royal Northern Sinfonia, and is produced by Streetwise Opera in partnership with Royal Northern Sinfonia, Sage Gateshead, Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Recovery College Collective, Changing Lives and media partner BBC Newcastle.

The show lasts 75 minutes and there is no interval.
