Event details

Four Coventry women, four different stories, and a common need for connection.

HER DAY is a new opera that tells the story of ordinary women engaged in everyday acts of peaceful protest. It’s equally as funny as it is moving and emerged from a series of workshops with local women’s groups and is a testament to the power and resilience of Coventry.

The female-led opera by Coventry-based women Sayan Kent and Vanessa Oakes will be directed by Lucy Bradley (Royal Opera House, OperaUpClose and Glyndebourne) with Musical Direction by Berrak Dyer (Opera Holland Park & Welsh National Opera) and will include a community chorus of local female singers led by Mariana Rosas (Colla Voce Chamber Choir).
