Two music dramas are brought together in a startling fusion, exploding the inner lives of two tortured souls. In Dominic Argento's Miss Havisham's Wedding Night, Charles Dickens' anti-heroine obsessively reenacts the events of her wedding day fifty years ago, when she was jilted by her fiance and vowed vengeance against the male sex. Then Aaron Copland's song-cycle Twelve Poems by Emily Dickinson reveals the hidden world of the isolated yet expressive poet.
Soprano Sarah Minns embodies both women in an evocative production which reveals the depths of their passions.
