“I heard you”
“You heard me.”
A chamber opera in the making by librettist Lila Palmer, hEARd explores the gulf between what is said and what is meant and the consequences of disconnect in a very human relationship. In a story of humour, grief and tenderness – a couple on the edge. What do they, and we, understand? Is it their final conversation?
A violinist and an actor, a cellist and a soprano. How can four make two? Bringing together the brightest emerging talents from devised theatre and instrumental performance, Roman River Music invite you to explore a familiar shared experience told through the impassioned collision of words, bodies and melody.
With the generous support of the Ambache Charitable Trust, raising the profile of music by women.
