This is one in a series of ten podcasts that we produced about a newly commissioned children’s opera by composer Kate Whitley and writer Sabrina Mahfouz. The podcasts follow the production of the opera Paws & Padlocks, from writing and fundraising through to rehearsals and the final performance. You can listen to all ten podcasts in the series on Soundcloud.
Paws & Padlocks was commissioned by Blackheath Halls with support from the Arts Council England and a number of other charitable trusts. It premiered at the Blackheath Halls in April 2017. You’ll find more information on the Blackheath Halls website.
