A bold re-imagining of the operatic form.
300 years from now. World economies have failed. The human vestiges of earth are scattered and defenseless, pursued by flood and famine. In 2016 a group of women from around the world are drawn together by an unearthly power, to forge a future for their planet.
Written, directed and co-composed by award winning sound artist, Melanie Wilson, with critically acclaimed Polish composer Katarina Glowicka; Opera for the Unknown Woman is a bold reimagining of the operatic form, weaving together theatre, contemporary classical music, electronics and film. The talented ensemble includes Patricia Rozario OBE and Adey Grummet (Jerry Springer: The Opera, Mr Burns).
This science fiction, multi-media opera channels a performance of vivid imagination and passionate politics into an exhilarating call to action.
Written and directed by Melanie Wilson. Co-composed by Melanie Wilson and Katarina Glowicka. Produced by Fuel.
