This is a collaborative project between the Music Department and the Film TV & Animation department. A semi-staged programme of operatic excerpts by Mozart and other composers including Britten, Donizetti and Stravinsky, will include the premiere of a new ensemble work for women by student composer, Helena Gandra, and feature a newly commissioned film by MA student, Simu Zhang.
Contrasting vocal music and the continuous strong presence of film shall take the audience on a journey of life and love. Various thoughts and emotions are explored in a series of arias, duets, trios and larger ensembles, beginning with the exuberance of Mozart’s grand chorus from Tito di Clemenza and ending in a reassured acknowledgement of life with the finale of Britten’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.
