IN RESIDENCE 2018

Threading the Light is a new mixed-media chamber opera work by Australian composer Felicity Wilcox that brings together concert music, theatre, electronic music, animation and visual design, to re-imagine musical performance, drawing on cutting-edge digital applications of sound and image, as well as the ancient and deeply human expression of live musical performance. Speaking to the vision of a world united by common practices and shgared human values, this dramatic and mesmerizing work is bound together by the theme of ritual, with texts sourced from prayers and contemplative writings across a broad range of faiths and languages.
