Local composer Michael Betteridge follows up on the success of his opera Thousand Furs which premiered at the IABF last summer by teaming up with composer Anna Braithwaite to present a brand new piece of verbatim musical theatre tackling loss and survival on the topics of HIV and dementia respectively. Setting the stories of two people facing life-changing diagnoses with honesty and humour against a backdrop of classical, pop and folk, these are musical portraits told In Their Own Words.

“Michael Betteridge’s inventive score parodies Handel’s choruses, medieval courtly dance and even barber shop quartet.”
