The Queen of the Night - Katherine Bruton, Soprano

Mrs. Darling - Marysa Abbas, Mezzo-Soprano


The Queen of the Night, Mrs. Darling, and Clytemnestra reconvene repeatedly to a desolate wasteland, where they return each time someone is done reading their stories. They then discuss the losses of each of their daughters, one by death, one by estrangement, and one by intervalic disappearance. It's also about how these three very different women come together to express their grief and eventually, with the discovery that they relive this story and these feelings on repeat, decide to try and end the cycle.
