Watch the world premiere of Seeds of Change, a short opera composed, rehearsed and performed in just one week, as part of the Royal Opera House Write an Opera course.
The opera centres on a big drama in a small village. Lady Dee, the regular winner of the annual vegetable competition with her artichokes, is outraged when village newcomer and Dr Who fan Alan enters his own artichokes into the competition.
A mysterious stranger helps Alan and watches the proceedings, seeing him take the artichoke prize. Having won the cup, Alan ultimately takes pity on Lady Dee.
The Write an Opera course is part of the Royal Opera House education department's programme for schools and teachers.
