Deep Waters was specially commissioned by the W11 Opera for a cast of over 80 children. The action begins with a wild, raging storm. Four children fall overboard to the bottom of the sea. In this supernatural, aquatic world, where the fish play havoc with each other in a bid to survive, the children find they can now breathe. With a ghastly sense of impending doom, they realize that it was no accident that brought them here. They have a dangerous task to perform. An opera that is witty but with a dark edge, it has a serious issue at its heart - overfishing.
The music includes a hot blues number, sung by Tina Tuna and the Electric Eels, a twenties flapper dance for the delectable Jelly Babes and a big gospel showstopper for Angel and the Fillettes.
