- Jack The Ripper: The Women Of Whitechapel
A community of women under attack. A monstrous evil that brings death in the night. In the face of a terrible darkness, can friendship defeat fear and create a community united in hope?
"Iain Bell's new opera, with a libretto by Emma Jenkins, explores powerful themes of community and women struggling against the odds, posing questions about the hypocritical attitudes of 'respectable' society. The mythic status of the unidentified serial killer is addressed through a refreshingly modern lens, which speaks to us over a century later. With vocal and orchestral writing that always packs an emotional punch, Bell's score features music that is mercurial and explosive one moment and heart-wrenchingly beautiful the next."
