Open Session: How to write a chamber opera

Wednesday 16 Aug 2017 9:33pm

Composer Emily Howard, writer Selma Dimitrijevic and director Dan Ayling are developing a new chamber opera on a Residency.

During their visit in September 2016 the team explored the practical relationship between composer, librettist and director. During their second Residency they will work with singers from EXAUDI Vocal Ensemble and Paris-based duo scapegoat to investigate the sonic world of the main character as well as exploring some possible staging ideas.

During this Open Session they will present short sections of the new opera followed by an opportunity for feedback.
