This is the first scene from the rock opera. The scene introduces the main characters in the opera, The Street Children, The Pimp and Anna. It outlines some of their difficulties of living on the street. The opera is aimed at 14 to 18 year olds. If anyone would consider performing a workshop performance of this scene please contact me. The whole of scene 1 has been orchestrated see "We live out here in the street’, ’Hello. that’s alright’ and ’end of scene one’.

Reviews form Sibelius music:-

Excellent Not exactly what you’d expect from a rock opera, it’s brilliant. It makes me sad to think that I live in America and can’t help to workshop this piece. A superb mix of traditional swinging rhythms and recitative sections. I love the characterization of the four street urchins, and would love to see it developed more. To the composer, excellent work.

Samuel Hunter

Intriguing Well, I don’t know much about rock opera, belonging to the classical music tradition, but this intro made me want to see the whole show. Perhaps I will one day - in London’s West End, if this composer gets the recognition and encouragement he deserves.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.
