Item Number: S0.907957

A one-act opera in three scenes, based on the chilling ballad of the Twa Sisters, collected by Francis Child. Libretto by Christopher Faulkner. Includes a silent part for one of the sisters which was performed by a dancer in the original production, and ideally requires a tenor/soprano who can play the violin for the part of the violinist, otherwise this could be mimed. Otherwise, singers required:

Sister: Soprano
Violin-maker: Baritone
Violinist: Tenor
Groom: Baritone
Best man: Baritone
Matron: Mezzo-soprano
Staff girl: Soprano
Staff man: Tenor

Total running time approx. 50mins. The music takes an English folk melody for one if its main themes but the overall style is lyrical with rich harmonies and interweaving lines.
