A taster video of the debut launch of this amazing operatic performance which took place at the Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday 3rd December 2008.
My Secret Heart is a new commission by Streetwise Opera (www.streetwiseopera.org) of a music and film installation written by electronic composer and Warp artist Mira Calix, video artists Flat-e and sound designer Dave Sheppard.
The have worked with around 80-100 Streetwise performers from across the UK to create a unique work that will be shown around the world.
The new piece is inspired by the Allegris 17th-century choral work Miserere Mei, a piece so protected by the Vatican that they put an embargo on it. Mira Calix and Flat-e have used the theme of secrecy to explore movements and singing with Streetwise's participants to create this new century-leaping work.
The installation will also tour to galleries and festivals across the world through 2009.
