Sadie is the red dragon. Jason is the green dragon. It’s been that way since nursery. But now as they edge towards their late twenties, their lives pull them in different directions. Will their friendship suffer a final, fatal rupture, or endure stronger than ever? Inspired by real issues of real Merton people we’ve spoken to, this new opera puts modern friendship under the microscope, examining the pressures that push some relationships to breaking point, and the joys that sustain others despite the odds.
Drifting Dragons is an opera about everyday life performed in everyday locations along the high street. The free unticketed performances take place on the street. Watch the performance pop-up then follow the story!
