Coram Boy



Premiering on Friday 7 May, 7.30pm

Composer: Jasper Dommett


“Do you see colour, when you hear different notes?”  

Set in misty eighteenth-century Gloucestershire, Jasper Dommett’s new one-act opera, Coram Boy, explores the chance meeting of a cathedral chorister and a mysterious boy with a merciless past. 

Directed by Fleur Snow, Coram Boy is based on Helen Edmundson’s theatrical adaptation of Jamila Gavin’s highly acclaimed novel.  

The opera is scored for an intimate ensemble, weaving in electronic soundscapes and echoes of Handel’s angelic cathedral organ.
