300-year old miniature operas staged in London for the first time

Élisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s biblical cantatas are extraordinary historical jewels. Written by a woman, about women, for women, they tell bold, unflinching tales about love, marriage, tragedy and adultery, each one a tiny opera in all by name.

These unfairly neglected breath-taking miniatures – in new English translations by Toria Banks – will receive their UK premiere stagings more than 300 years after they were composed, in three atmospheric, fully accessible settings that champion the ability of women to tell their own stories and narrate their own experiences.

Created in partnership with Dunedin Consort, HERA, Mahogany Opera and the National Centre for Early Music
