Episodes, a 2020 project by The Opera Story, brings together several young composers and librettists to create a series of short opera videos created during the COVID-19 crisis. Watch all the Episodes here.
The main focus of this project is having each episode set in the same apartment building with a problematic (noisy, broken, unreliable) elevator. How the characters interact within (and between) each episode is up to you…
It was a privilege to write the libretto for the first production by innovative London-based opera company The Opera Story. Snow is a three-act opera inspired by the story of Snow White that most of us know, but told from a fresh, and darker, perspective. Snow premiered in London in February 2017.
In July 2019, I joined the amazing composer Samantha Fernando for a week at the Royal Opera House where we had been invited to develop our opera Mussitātiō in the Engender Open Studio programme.
My opera writing experience began here – an incredible year working with super talented artists at Snape Maltings.
