The Girl I Left Behind Me
Opera North Projects
Monday 21 May, 7.30pm

With just a piano, a microphone and a few well-chosen items of male attire, mezzo-soprano Jessica Walker and theatre director Neil Bartlett conjure up an entire world, from the swaggering cross-dressers of the Victorian music hall to the ambiguous boy-heroes of Mozart and Strauss.
