The economy's in tatters! What's an Opera graduate to do in times of strife? Sing for her supper? This comic opera follows Lizzie and John as they try to make it in a cash-strapped world. But will they get the funds? Will the show go ahead? Or will they be doomed to a life of arts admin? With some of opera's best loved arias economically squeezed into a new score by Alex Horowitz together with Jennifer Knotts' new libretto, this is a budget opera for the austerity age that celebrates the necessity of art - at any cost!
