Dead Equal 2016

Masterclasses with Janis Kelly 14th November, Mark Wigglesworth 15th, Jonathan Moore 17th, David Poutney 18th and Judith Weir 24th. The final Triple Opera Performance was Friday 25th November at Lillian Bayliss House, ENO. 


Dead Equal 

‘Special Treatment.’ ‘Falling standards.’ ‘Rising casualties.’

In 2016, a chorus of critical voices lamented the entry of servicewomen into full combat roles in the British Army. But in 1916, one British woman was already fighting on the Allied front line. Flora Sandes became a public heroine. A century later, her successors go operational. 


Through the stories of three women, real and imagined, Dead Equal celebrates the courage and sacrifice of women in theatres of war, probing the cost and meaning of service, the influence of social structures, and the disruptive power of a female identity forged in blood and sweat.
