Event description
What Happened to Agnes is a staged song cycle that tells the story of Nishla's grandmother’s sister, who disappeared as a child in Malaysia.

About this Event

"When my grandmother’s sister Agnes was nine years old, she disappeared…”

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 an unforgettable piano score from Tom Harris, Nishla's haunting songs bewitch and enchant, drawing the listeners ever deeper into a dark world of lost memories.

Developed by Opera North Projects and Leeds Playhouse, with support from the PRSF Talent Development Programme.

There will also be a Post-Show talk for this event.
