ROH2 presents a water-bound operatic spectacle based around the Edward Lear poem 'The Owl and the Pussycat'. Featuring a libretto from ex-Monty Python Terry Jones, a new commissioned score from musician and Oscar-winning ('The Full Monty') composer Anne Dudley and directed by Martin Constantine, it will be performed at various points along the canals as it travels from West to East. Stars Peter Willcock (Owl) and Claire Wild (Pussycat), with Amy Freston (Maid One), Samantha Houston (Maid Two/Piggywig), Tyrone Landau (Turkey/League of Feline Decency), Freddie Tong (Bong Tree/League of Feline Decency). (This is one of the highlights of the Mayor of London's 'Secrets', a series of extraordinary site-specific collaborations taking place in a range of hidden spaces across the capital in summer 2012. Runs 35 miunutes. Suitable for children aged five and over. There is no seating at Horsenden Farm so bring a rug, blanket or cushion. No portable furniture or chairs.)
