An all female team tell the forgotten true story of Flora Sandes, heroine of the Allied front line in World War I, in a new opera.

Flora and fellow nurse Emily Simmonds travelled to the Serbian front as medical volunteers. Sick of the sidelines, Flora joined the Serbian army as a soldier while Emily continued nursing. Their story is woven together with verbatim testimony from contemporary servicewomen of the Royal Army Medical Corps, with music by Rose Miranda Hall and Lila Palmer with the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

Tickets include admission to Live Equal, a portrait exhibit by acclaimed photographer Wolf James.
