1513: A Ships’ Opera


by Richard Wilson and Zatorski + Zatorski

Covering 40 sea miles, 1513: A Ships’ Opera is an astonishing water-borne performance for the river Thames. An armada of extraordinary historic vessels from the age of sail, steam and diesel perform in a live, moving, operatic concerto of ships’ steam whistles, bells, horns, hooters, sirens and cannon as the the centrepiece of the 2013 Thames Festival.
