Opera: The World’s Wife

Categories: ,
We do our best,
we Queens, we mothers,
mothers of Queens
That saying? Behind every famous man…? From Mrs Darwin to Queen Kong, Carol Ann Duffy’s The World’s Wife is a poetry collection that takes a swipe at the famous men of history and myth from their spouses’ perspective.
Composer Tom Green has transformed these firework poems in to a 21st century opera for solo soprano and string quartet and loop pedals.
Join us for the debut of a radical new operatic voice, as five onstage musicians construct disembodied choirs and armies of string quartets to tell a story we all share.
A production by Welsh National Opera, Taliesin Arts Centre, Echo Forest and The Mavron Quartet.
Sung in English with surtitles in English
