Little Wise Girl Chamber Opera
Cast exploring their characters through "interviews"
Feedback and discussion moment with the Director Jonnie Swift
This is my first foray into writing an opera. I took inspiration from Romanticism, having chosen a folk tale collected during this period of history. My inspirations for writing this work included the work of ethnomusicologists such as Bela Bartok and Zoltan Kodaly. I've investigated the folk music of Europe that had been collected by ethnomusicologist, in particular the folk music of different areas of Russia including music of cultures including the Cossacks, Ukrainians, Siberians, Slovenians and Gypsies.
