Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Square
Dear friends !
This project emerged in the beginning of the year in the busy centre of Kyiv, when an ambulance ignition key broke in half. At that point the crew of our grassroots Lifeline Express charity was making its way across Europe from the leafy surbubs of Wimbledon to bring to Ukraine much needed ambulances.
Looking for a solution to the broken key on the streets, we noticed that performances at the Kyiv National Opera were still taking place despite the war. At the same time, we were of course aware of the perseverance of the a Odesa Opera Theatre, which has defiantly persisted amidst Russian rocket attacks and air raids .
Hence, we decided to take the timeless tale and dramatic melodies of Puccini’s opera Tosca and transport them to contemporary milieu of Odesa during the ongoing invasion. The result is a moving, eclectic and vivid multi- faceted “ opera meets drama “ composition.
This live stage performance is dedicated to the rebellion of culture against the madness and atrocities of the war.
All proceeds will go to carefully chosen humanitarian relief charities operating on the ground in Ukraine.
It is going to be an emotional and beautiful evening. Please do join us!
Side £20/Central £25/VIP £45
Side £25/Central £30/VIP £55
Please also support us with your donations on our crowdfunding platform
And please spread the word about Tosca in Odesa. We look forward to seeing you at the event, and sharing a glass of wine at the pre-performance reception.
