Description

ONE ART: an opera/cabaret

'The art of losing isn't hard to master...' Elizabeth Bishop's poem One Art is a tribute to the inevitability of loss and an imperative for creatives to transform personal pain into artwork. Hailed as one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century, Bishop was Poet Laureate of the United States and a Pulitzer Prize winner. Orphaned at a very early age, she travelled widely as an adult, and lived in New York, Key West, San Francisco, Boston, and Brazil. Her poetry shielded her private life, expressing her feelings and experiences indirectly; a clearer picture of her life emerges in her correspondence, detailing her struggles with life, love, poetry, and alcohol.

Her poetry is transformed by opera composer Paula M. Kimper into art songs which, interwoven with Bishop's letters and life story, create the framework for an intimate and moving performance by soprano Laure Meloy.

A co-production of Femme Lunatique and The Mosaic Cat
