Commissioned by the Mornington Trust

Chamber Opera for four singers and small chamber ensemble

Set in Corsica in the late nineteenth century, the opera explores the ambiguity surrounding the mazzere – women gifted with the prescience of death. If they foresee death, do they also cause it? The men may hunt by day, but the women hunt in their dreams.
