Nova Music Opera brings together a pair of contemporary chamber operas by Charlotte Bray and Thomas Hyde about misunderstood characters from modern British history. In the sixtieth anniversary year of her controversial execution, the end of Ruth Ellis’ life is examined in Charlotte Bray’s work Entanglement.

Thomas Hyde’s That Man Stephen Ward, premiered to wonderful reviews in 2008, charts the demise of one of the more tragic characters involved in the Profumo scandal of the early 1960s.
