The journey of a family to discover its past. Merseyside writer Julia Nelki wrote Villa Russo as an act of witness and of bringing together the history and threads of her own family. This concert takes Julia’s voice and brings it to life on stage, taking us from the heart of Germany in 1750 to the high Andes, from outcasts to opera, from villains to a villa.
