Clemency [Scottish Opera]
  • Opera
  • "Sarah and Abraham are visited in their old age by three travellers. Their conversation becomes increasingly unsettling and the visitors make the unlikely claim that Sarah is to have a new child. As the couple wonder who the bearers of such news might be, talk turns to a mission of vengeance, and a horrifying plan that leaves them pleading for their neighbours' lives.

    Clemency introduces a contemporary twist to a biblical tale, creating the spiritual intensity and reflection for which James MacMillan's work is so well known."
