Room of Worlds is a new chamber opera for live voices, electronics and video. The opera charts the physical and psychological journey of a woman in a patriarchal landscape of domesticity, love and loneliness, through medicine and memory to the edge of madness. Exploring the notion of the video surface as consciousness and with a score derived from William Morris designs the performance will be a singularly immersive experience.
Room of Worlds is based loosely on The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and is the result of the ongoing collaboration between electronic artist Charles Webber (composer/video) and experimental vocalist and ex-Crass chanteuse Eve Libertine (libretto).
Produced by operaNCV and funded by the Arts Council England Lottery Funding, with support from The Horse Hospital, Femme Brutal (Oslo) and DACS Audio.
