Composed by Lenny Sayers Librettist and Director Brendan Wheatley
The premiere of an uplifting and accessible new opera staged by Swansea City Opera and based on the poignant and humourous stories of the members of Men’s Sheds Cymru
This unique organisation supports lonely men by creating warm and welcoming spaces where people can learn new skills, build friendships, make new beginnings and drink tea!
