Melanie Wilson

Opera for the Unknown Woman

Opera for the Unknown Woman is a bold sound work for voices, created by Melanie Wilson (UK) with co-composer Katarina Glowicka (PL) and projection designer Will Duke (UK). It is an epic science-fiction dream of Earth in the 21st and 22nd centuries, seen through the eyes of its women and visitors from the far future, fusing contemporary classical and electronic music, choral singing, film and choreography.

The project was presented at Warwick Arts Centre, The Festival of the Voice at Wales Millenium Centre, Platform Theatre London and The Lawrence Batley Theatre in the Yorkshire International Festival in June 2016.

The project was produced by Fuel and is available for U.K and international touring. For more information, please contact Louise Blackwell: louise@fueltheatre.com.
