“I dreamt I heard him murmuring,
murmuring as if in sleep, himself…”
– from Howell’s Decision
An Aria, 5 minutes
Commissioned by the National Opera Studio
First performance: 14th June, 2018, Hoxton Hall
Lewis and Laura were commissioned to write a bespoke aria for one of the exceptional Young Artists at the National Opera Studio as part of the 12:40 project in 2018, celebrating the organisation’s 40th birthday.
Baritone Edmund Danon and pianist Igor Horvat will premiere the piece, alongside new works for each of the other Young Artists written by eleven other composer/librettist teams.
