Homeless Opera


Matt Peacock had two very different jobs--working as an opera critic and at the local homeless shelter. He never thought the two would ever have anything to do with one another, until a thoughtless quote in the newspaper changed everything.

Check out Streetwise Opera here, where you can check out past and upcoming performances and donate to their cause. Some of the audio in this piece originally aired in a documentary for BBC’s Radio 4, which was produced by Hannah Andrassy and Loftus Productions. Thanks so much to Matt Peacock, Loftus Productions, The BBC, and the two beautiful performers you heard--Kerry-Anne and Doc.

Producer: Stephanie Foo, Hannah Andrassy and Loftus Productions.
