Work Overview

A project some years in the making, A Strange Kind of Paradise is a response to Monteverdi's famous aria 'Lasciatemi morire', the one remaining remnant of the opera Arianna. Based on the myth of Ariadne, the work explores the melancholy of abandonment and uncanny respite achieved from no longer having the torment of others present - a strange kind of paradise.
