English National Opera 'Jack the Rippper'
Original soundtrack from English national Opera_2018 Jack the ripper
Based of given music from English national Opera I extended the story from actual Jack the ripper period to Now, as below.
I explore the abusive power that men exert over women — on their bodies
and their minds — as perceived through the foggy lens of time. The past and the present are
overlaid in order to challenge the illusion which separates them. The present is already past.
The past is always present.
Given that Jack was never caught, and that some people believe he could have been multiple
killers, should we represent him as only one man? By choosing to never reveal his identity,
we’ll insinuate that the Ripper could be any one of us, as well as in all of us — and that in
today’s society, he rips women’s hopes for a brighter future, he rips their dreams into
domestic submission, and he rips their self-esteems as well as their ability to control their
Who was Jack then, and who is he now? What was abuse like then, and what is like now?
