Growth

of

the

Silk

Growth of the Silk is the feted fable of a girl’s misguided wish for long lustrous hair which

 

leaves her ultimately crushed under the weight of the unstoppable growth.

'The piece feels like an alternative offering to the world of contemporary opera

 

 

and breaks down a few stereotypes associated with the genre. Although this is

 

 

opera comes from a different perspective to the classical acoustic concert hall

 

 

tradition we naturally associate with the art form.'
