ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Written in 2014, HERE BE SIRENS is Kate Soper’s first piece for the stage and is scored for three singers and a piano (without a conductor), much like her recent and widely acclaimed opera, The Hunt.

Written in 2014, HERE BE SIRENS is Kate Soper’s first piece for the stage and is scored for three singers and a piano (without a conductor), much like her recent and widely acclaimed opera, The Hunt.  HERE BE SIRENS presents the daily life of three sirens, who kill time on their island as they await an endless procession of doomed sailors. Peitho revels in the luxurious sensuality of their rite; Phaino stonily enacts the ritual with no inner feeling; and Polyxo longs for escape into the world of the real, delving into centuries of scholarship and research on her species in an attempt to untwist their circumstances. As the opera goes on, the sirens re-enact the abduction of Persephone, encounter (and battle) their favored sisters the Muses, and leave no rock unturned to plumb the depths of their own origins, in this work of “audacious, genre-bending music theatre” (Wall Street Journal).
