It is written by composer Mike Roberts and librettist Sarah Grange, in collaboration with refugee and migrant groups and choirs across London.

The Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus will be premiering a new Royal Opera House commission by composer John Barber and librettist Hazel Gould, with baritone soloist James Oldfield.
