See this new 60-minute chamber opera which follows a couple around Museum London on an awkward first date spent arguing about art. Nine songs about nine paintings inspired by the Museum's collection weave a story about love, death, beaches, the meaning of art, and ice cream. Music by Oliver Whitehead, lyrics by Whitehead and Linda Nicholas, and performed by soprano Sonja Gustafson and baritone Paul Grambo. 

Visitors can view the paintings on display until June 28 at the Museum and listen to the accompanying songs online. 

Project made possible by: The Good Foundation, London Arts Council, the London Opera Guild, and a private donor.
