Losing Her Voice
18 November, 2018, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This event will feature live performances of scenes from Dr Elizabeth Kelly’s upcoming opera, ‘Losing Her Voice’, which tells the story of Geraldine Farrar, an early 20th-century opera diva who made the transition to the silent screen and starred in a silent ‘Carmen’ directed by the legendary Cecil B. Demille.
The scenes for this event will explore Farrar’s training with renowned Wagnerian soprano Lilli Lehmann, her journey to find her individual artistic identify, her transition from stage to silent screen, and the trials and tribulations she faced as one of the first international celebrities.
‘Losing Her Voice’ has been written in close collaboration with the University of Nottingham Computer Science Mixed Reality Lab, and the session will also showcase some of the technologies developed for the opera, which enable novel interactions between performers, archival media and the audience. Dr Kelly will lead the session, and the audience will have the opportunity to interact with the composer, performers, and the computer science team to gain insight into their collaborative creative process.
Geraldine Farrar – Samantha Stinson, soprano
Lilli Lehmann – Sabine Wüthrich, soprano
Cecil B. Demille – Jonathan Stinson, baritone
