operatic fantasia by Richard Mills, ’Tis Pity
reunites the creative forces of international chanteuse Meow Meow and
director Cameron Menzies to create a brand new work, following their
acclaimed production of The Seven Deadly Sins.
Richard Mills composes a flight of fancy on ‘selling the skin and
the teeth’. A song cycle on the complexities of sex, pleasure, survival and
salvation, trade transactions and razzle dazzle rouge through the ages, from
Ishtar to the Internet, the vamp, the saint and the mirror, suckers and
succour, preaching and pragmatism.
Be drawn into a fantastical history of the concubine, the courtesan, the
conqueror, the queen and the sing song girl. With texts ancient and modern,
old and original.
With Meow Meow, Kanen Breen and
conducted by Richard Mills.
