What happened to Agnes?

What Happened to Agnes brings to life the vivid imagination of singer and story-teller Nishla Smith, as she spins her grandmother’s Malaysian childhood memories into a magic-realist realm of talking tigers, hidden dangers and infinite staircases.

Set against the vibrant backdrop of Luca Shaw’s hand-painted projections and a stunning piano score from Tom Harris, Nishla’s haunting songs bewitch and enchant, drawing the listeners ever deeper into a dark world of lost memories.

The Storey Auditorium will provide the perfect intimate setting for this enchanting show which was originally developed by Opera North Projects, with support from the PRSF Talent Development Programme.
