A short documentary by Hazuan Hashim & Phil Maxwell - artists in residence at the Wilton's Music Hall.
A one-woman opera by Deirdre Gribbin.
(3, 4, 5 July 2008 at the Wilton's Music Hall).
From the producers of Brian Friel’s PERFORMANCES, a sell-out at Wilton’s, comes a new one-woman opera, with two dancers, composed by one of the UK’s leading young classical contemporary composers, Deirdre Gribbin. This is Wilton's first new commission. This modern multi-media production by Lou Stein uses new translations of Chinese Tang poetry to tell the story of a passionate woman who loses her lover to war, and her desire to make contact with him again.
