Wavering between dream and consciousness, between fantasy and thriller, L’Inconnue de la Seine (The Unknown Girl of the Seine) is a new opera in the making that reflects society’s deep relationship with images of death and beauty. An opera for soprano, actor and small ensemble to be premiered in Fall 2018, it originally emerged from an ENOA workshop on the Orpheus myth led by Martin Crimp and Nicholas McNair.
