Nova Music Opera brings together a pair of contemporary chamber operas by Charlotte Bray and Thomas Hyde about two 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 great reviews in 2008, charts the demise of one of the more tragic characters involved in the Profumo scandal of the early 1960s.

Charlotte Bray co-commissioned with Nova Music Opera, the Presteigne Festival and Cheltenham Music Festival, and with the support of


Parabola Arts Centre, Cheltenham Ladies' College

Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.

The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
