Nottingham Lakeside Arts is thrilled to premiere University of Nottingham Composer Elizabeth Kelly’s first opera. Losing Her Voice brings to life in music and film the story of the early 20th-century American opera diva Geraldine Farrar who became a silent film star and performed Carmen silently in an acclaimed 1915 Cecil B. Demille film. Alongside celebrating Farrar’s achievements, the opera explores ideas surrounding the cult of celebrity and the impact of social media.
Performed by professional soloists and musicians alongside University of Nottingham’s talented student musicians.
The production experiments with interactive technologies and encourages audience engagement through a specially designed app. Audience interaction is encouraged and mobile devices are welcome.
