Shoulder to Shoulder’s ensemble features Wales-based professional singers and musicians, many of whom sing and play in major opera houses, companies, and orchestras, including the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Glyndebourne Festival Opera; Welsh National Opera, English National Opera; Opera North; Scottish Opera, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Soprano Jess Robinson, who plays the role of Gwen, represented Wales in the prestigious BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2023. As a finalist, Jessica follows in the footsteps of names, including the internationally renowned Welsh singer Sir Bryn Terfel.

Librettist Brendan Wheatley rooted Shoulder to Shoulder in the stories of ‘Shedders’, which he gathered through interviews in 2020 – 2021.

By listening to stories and sharing the laughter of ‘Shedders’, Brendan crafted the story and libretto of Shoulder to Shoulder. The composer and clarinettist Lenny Sayers, whose music has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Scotland, wrote the score.
