Product details

This three-disc collection documents the operas and major vocal works composed by Liza Lim for ELISION, Australia's preeminent new music ensemble, with whom Lim has maintained a close collaborative relationship for nearly four decades. As with all of her works for the stage, here Lim embraces opera's opportunities to explore radical ideas of anthropological ritual, transculturalism, transfiguration, and the spiritual dimensions of myth, memory, language, and culture.

Duration: 146 min.
