The Lady From The Sea: Scottish Opera
Ellida, the daughter of a lighthouse-keeper, lives a narrow life with a husband several years her senior. Full of longing for the sea and for a freedom she does not have, she is shaken from her lethargy when the unexpected arrival of a mysterious stranger creates a storm that threatens to submerge the whole family. He offers an escape from the stifling world she inhabits, and Ellida must decide whether to do her duty or answer the call of the sea…
This re-telling of Ibsen’s darkly beautiful drama unites award-winning author Zoë Strachan and internationally acclaimed film composer Craig Armstrong. Though both have produced work for Five:15 – Operas Made in Scotland, this is the first time they have worked together. The production makes use of video design, playing to Armstrong’s extensive cinematic experience on films including Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge!
Sung in English.
