    Her work does not appear to be about music, but about social intervention.

    Whether sharing culture with the homeless would improve their accomodation problems, remains to be seen. But it may be that discovering the fate of Dido, Donna Anna’s father, Norma and Pollione, Siegmund, Siegfried, Don Carlo and Posa, Salome, Elektra, Pelléas and Wozzeck, will put their own problems in some perspective.
