Operas

Two Sisters

Two Sisters is a new opera in three acts with Arabic libretto, set on the Turkish-Syrian border. Two Sisters explores important current themes - looking radically at our lives and how we live them; the choice to stay or go; what human resilience looks like; and the bond between women. 

 

The opera has just completed its first phase of R&D to incorporate electronic music and improvisation and has been written as a graphic score for three singers and ensemble.
