Out Of Her Mouth: Cantates Bibliques: ‘Judith’, ‘Rachel’ & ‘Susanne’
Author(s): Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre in new English translations by Toria Banks
Company: Dunedin Consort, Hera and Mahogany Opera
Running time: 1h 00min approx
Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s biblical cantatas tell bold, unflinching tales about love, marriage, tragedy and adultery, each one a tiny opera in all by name.
These miniatures—in new English translations by Toria Banks and directed by Mathilde Lopez—will receive their UK premières more than 300 years after they were composed.
