Performing Arts: Sublimation (2010) and The Lady from the Sea (2012)

Performing Arts: Sublimation (2010) and The Lady from the Sea (2012)

There are two distinct collaborations that together form a narrative of linked work in contemporary opera libretti. Production and success of Sublimation, a short opera co-written with composer Dr Nick Fells (GU), led to a further commission for The Lady from the Sea, a full length opera with music by composer Craig Armstrong. Sublimation was selected to travel to South Africa for performance by Cape Town Opera. The Lady from the Sea had its world premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival in 2012, as a key part of Scottish Opera’s 50th anniversary season.

Sublimation sold out at all its shows, to audiences totalling thousands of people. The production of The Lady from the Sea won a Herald Angel Award at the EIF 2012.
