Abstract

A chamber opera involving Helen Noonan (singer), Arabella Teniswood-Harvey (pianist), Iain Lang, Jane Longhurst and Sara Cooper (actors), directed by Michael Campbell. The musical material comprised settings of Shakespearean text by contemporary composer Alison Bauld, and additional material was developed by Campbell in conjunction with the performers during the rehearsal period. The pianist's role included improvisation, action and speaking. The two performances were well received and reviewed in the Mercury by Elizabeth Ruthven ('Heroines' longing lives on', The Mercury, 21 August 2010). This was a premiere performance.
