The Wish Gatherer


Lola is a young girl struggling with the effects on her world after COVID, her parent’s recent divorce and the climate crisis. One day, she sets out on a journey to meet the magical Wish Gatherer in a story of beauty, loss, revolution, and new beginnings.

The Wish Gatherer is the first instalment in English Touring Opera’s trilogy of Climate Change operas. Made in collaboration with the pioneering green non-profit Julie’s Bicycle, The Wish Gatherer explores the impact of climate change on the natural world, in a national curriculum-linked adventure story.
