Losing Her Voice focuses on opera diva Geraldine Farrar as she films Cecil B. Demille’s silent-film adaptation of Carmen. The audience is invited to join her throngs of “Gerryflapper” fans as she journeys from stage to silver screen to the screens of their personal devices.
The work won support from a 2018 Opera America/Virginia Toulmin Foundation Discovery Grant.
There will be a series of workshops leading to the premiere at Lakeside Arts Centre 6-7 April 2019
The first showcase of scenes from the opera will be 18 November 2018, 5 p.m. at the Nottingham Royal Concert Hall as part of the Being Human Festival
For samples of my vocal writing, listen to Nuclear Shadow, my 2016 song cycle on poems by living poet Trenton Pollard published in Memorious Poetry Journal with Sabine Wuethrich, soprano and Daniel Kramer, piano.
