Program note

In 2008 I inherited a writing desk from my grandmother. Upon opening it and exploring the contents, I realised that the inside of this desk was the only physical space that she could have truly called her own.

Fascinated by this notion, immersed in Cavarero’s writings on the female voice, baffled by the amount of Opera being written in the 21st century, re-reading Dido and Eurydice’s respective myths and listening to Gluck and Purcell’s operas, I set out to find my own particular way to engage with the idea of opera. What has emerged is a miniature, intimate and immersive journey into an imaginary world.
