Part of the John Thaw Initiative. Curated by Blacktress UK.

Overview

“I was thinking about what happened. And how I thought we should have said something to that guy. But we shouldn’t have said something, we should have done something.”

Twenty-three years after being likened to a toddler-sized Muhammad Ali, six-foot vegan Simone has left Norfolk and is in the big smoke training to be an opera singer. Meanwhile Londoner chronic introvert Cassiopeia is suddenly labelled sassy and fabulous as casting directors ask to hear the same Motown song at every audition.

The Next Jessye Norman melds speech and song in a tale of two young women forging careers in an industry where the gatekeepers view race as fundamental to the value of a performer.
