Aria for mezzo-soprano or dramatic soprano
from the opera The Wild Beast of the Bungalow
Libretto by Royce Vavrek, based on the short story "Mermaid in the Jar" by Sheila Heti.

This aria occurs in the first portion of a triptych of short chamber operas (Mermaid in the Jar, Prairie Dogs, and Fine and Dandy) that take place entirely within an eleven-year-old Girl’s bedroom as she overhears her parents' volatile conversations on the other side. Over the course of a few days, a mermaid, a family of stuffed prairie dogs, and singing groups of chicken pox and shingles force her to confront what it means to care for others and be cared for herself.

WORLD PREMIERE: Oberlin Conservatory, Winter 2020
