Laika in Lambeth

Laika in Lambeth was a new opera written in partnership with Reay School in Lambeth. 120 young people were joined by adults for performances at Battersea Arts Centre in June 2013. The story was a response to the new opera Laika the Spacedog, with the Russian spacecraft landing in contemporary Lambeth and the consequences.
