Alasdair Nicolson (lib.John Gallas):
The Iris Murder (world première)

The first performance of a new chamber opera, The Iris Murder introduces three mysterious characters: Rawley Beaunes, an enigmatic figure firmly rooted in thought and dress in the 1950s; the doomed Iris; and the ethereal Green Man. Gothic intensity blends with tender beauty in this gripping, ghostly tale where nothing is quite as it seems. Alasdair Nicolson’s score, for clarinet, accordion, cello and percussion, combines with John Gallas’ libretto is a (slightly eerie and disturbing!) treat for any opera lover!

Tickets £8/6 in advance, £10 on the door.
