Event Details

Liza Lim The Heart’s Ear
Bushra El-Turk Silk Moth
Cassandra Miller Bel Canto

A woman, alone, wrestles with the part she played in her daughter’s downfall. Is she vulnerable? Or complicit? Bushra El-Turk‘s hard-hitting, contemporary opera Silk Moth is presented alongside compositions from Liza Lim and Cassandra Miller in a new, fully-staged production by Ruthless Jabiru for London's Grimeborn Opera Festival. A stellar cast of singers and conducted ensemble weave together Arabic and Western musical traditions, examining the complex tragedies of honour crime, family violence, and female (dis)empowerment in Britain and beyond.
