Suzi joined director Caroline Williams and composer Pete Letanka for a project working with 36 young people from across London.
Over four intensive days, the group created their own original piece London Rise inspired by the music and themes of The Gershwins’ opera Porgy and Bess.
The young people devised their own text, music and staging guided by the creative team. ENO chorister Robert Winslade Anderson and singer/cellist Ayanna Witter Johnson joined the participants to rehearse and perform alongside them. The project culminated with a performance on the set of Porgy and Bess on the London Coliseum stage – you can watch the video opposite for the highlights.
