A micro-opera composed in 2013 for ‘Opera Room’. Duration: approx. 25 minutes. Flat Pack is an opera in microcosm. Simon is building a flat pack drinks cabinet to go in his haven (his study). Initially excited by the prospect, difficulties with assembling the furniture lead him more to the drink than the cabinet, and he reflects unhappily on his lack of promotion in his job, and issues in his relationship with Joanne.
Performances: 31st July and 1st August 2014 at Tete a Tete Opera Festival, Central St. Martin’s, London
Simon: Peter Brathwaite Viola: Aled Jones; Bassoon: Emma Westley
