Notes and Editorial Reviews

A new opera, with libretto by Roger Morris based on the Orpheus legend, a main character alluding to Jean Cocteau, by British composer Ed Hughes. A stunning work in one Act, it is presented here in both audio CD and a DVD of the concert performance recording. The DVD also contains a short film by Sheryl Jenkins "'The Symptoms of his Madness were as Follows".

DVD: dual sided, PAL & NTSC compatible, region 0 (universal play)

“An intriguing Cocteau-esque opera that resists reaching for easy harmonic comforts... there is no gainsaying the vocal skills of the persuasive soloists, notably the mezzo-soprano Lucy Williams, who characterises her role with conviction.” – Barry Forshaw (Classical CD Choice / North

“Lucy Williams, haughty and beautiful, expressing much through her exquisite singing... an absorbing piece and an exciting introduction to Ed Hughes' music.” – Rick Jones (Music Blog)
