Davis + Lambourne + Wong: Heggie

Featuring Conservatorium staff and guest artists, this concert presents two works that bring attention to domestic violence, composed by award-winning American composer Jake Heggie.

Songs for Murdered Sisters (2020), with text by Margaret Atwood, will be re-imagined and interpreted by Melissa Davis (soprano), Victoria Lambourn (mezzo-soprano) and Jerry Wong (piano). To Hell and Back (2006), based on the Greco-Roman myth of Persephone, is a unique piece composed for two singers and a baroque orchestra. Sung by soprano Melissa Davis and mezzo-soprano Linda Barcan, this piece will be conducted by Stephen Grant and directed by Jane Davidson, who will thoughtfully combine elements of the present day alongside a Baroque timbre.
