Hermaphroditus M.P. puts a modern satirical spin on the ancient greek myth of Hermaphroditus and Salamis. A philandering right-wing M.P. is cursed by his wife and wakes to find himself half a woman half a man. Gender, politics, and gender politics

OCO’s first major production will be a week of opera on the theme of politics in the award-winning Leonard Wolfson Auditorium at Wolfson College, Oxford.

A new comic opera, Hermaphroditus M.P. by Roger Simmonds and David Willcock will be complemented by another work, a dance-opera as yet untitled, by Manchester-based composer Michael Betteridge.
