Round 5 – HM Prison Shotts
An opera created, designed and performed by prisoners of HMP Shotts with Scottish Opera and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra
Working with a professional writer, composer, musicians, designers, an animator and stage director over the past four months, everything seen on stage has been created by the men, often with no previous experience.
Round Five is part of Motherwell College’s Inspiring Change project, which is funded by the Scottish Arts Council’s Inspiring Communities Fund. Inspiring Change has provided a systematic and structured programme of high quality arts interventions in music, drama and the visual arts for prisoners in custody in five pilot prisons.
