Song Queen: A Pidgin Opera 2023 Forthcoming Show

Date: 14 February 2023

Song Queen: A Pidgin Opera coming to the UK from 29 April 2023

This ground-breaking opera, composed by Helen Epega also know as The Venus Bushfires; first staged in 2015, is the world’s first ever production of it’s kind.

Helen has created a unique experience in which the audience is transported to a world where music has the power to inspire, heal and unite at a time when the world seems so divided.

The newly revamped show is a blend of the rich African tradition of storytelling harnessing Nigerian Pidgin English, Patois, Creole, Cockney, Hip Hop Vernacular and Multicultural London Slang with Western Classical music presented through an Afro-Futuristic lens.

This musical phenomenon has already been performed in London, Lagos, Turin, Bodrum & Cape Town.

Back by popular demand, the pidgin opera returns to the U.K. this Spring-Summer 2023
