A piece of gig theatre like no other, Tones – A Hip Hop Opera combines the gritty underground sounds of hip-hop, grime and drill with the melodrama of opera to tell the story of a treacherous path to self-discovery. From Black British Theatre award-winner Gerel Falconer (nominee, The Stage Debut Awards), Tones is a riveting exploration of the black and mixed experience.
