Event description

Description

The World Premier of Singing Only Softly: A new opera by composer Cecilia Livingston, Librettist Monica Pearce and Director/Dramaturge Alaina Viau
Presented with The Diary of Anne Frank by Grigory Frid
Co-commissioned by Loose Tea Music Theatre and Musique 3 Femmes

What version of Anne Frank are you familiar with? Did you know that passages of The Diary of Anne Frank were censored and redacted?
Inspired by the original, unedited texts of the diary, Loose Tea Music Theater created Singing Only Softly. This Chamber opera voices Anne Frank as a fully formed young woman describing her experiences while discovering herself. Freshly interpreted in a current female context, it explores Anne's complex self awareness and self representation.

Anne Frank is portrayed by Sara Schabas and Gillian Grossman with Music Director Cheryl Duvall

“The expressive possibilities of this scale of work, with a couple of singers & a piano are enormous... Viau / Pearce / Livingston gave their creation the precision focus of a laser” - Barczablog 2019 from the Next Wave new opera workshop.

Many Thanks to Musique 3 Femmes and to the OAC for supporting the commissioning of this piece
