Different is a highly interactive opera especially designed for children with special needs and autistic spectrum disorders, in which the audience is involved in every part of the storytelling. 

It was created in a series of workshops with a group of young people on the autistic spectrum (Key Club), working alongside composer Llywelyn ap Myrddin, director/writer Tim Yealland and designer Ruth Paton. 

A huge factor in the development of the piece was understanding the need to engage totally with people with profound and multiple needs, as well as with people with milder needs and Aspergers Syndrome. The opera assesses issues of homelessness, autism, and migration.
