Description: Voicing Emily is a theatrical and moving image presentation, unfolding the life and art of Emily Dickinson — poet, genius, recluse and woman in white. The poems and letters of Dickinson, one of the most original 19th century American poets, have been set to music by three Melbourne composers: Jane Hammond, Greg Mason and Eddie Perfect. Voicing Emily is an ensemble work for three soprano/actresses and four instrumental musicians. The works takes the form of a Lieder-opera unique new genre of music-theater which uses the form of art song — its intimacy and poetry — in a combination with the theatricality and drama of opera. The script has been prepared by acclaimed performer Helen Noonan, who has made a special study of Emily Dickinson since first encountering her poetry through the songs of Aaron Copland.
