Kate Soper

Featuring Voices from the Killing Jar by Pulitzer Prize finalist, composer-performer Kate Soper



Musiqa presents Playing Havoc featuring Voices from the Killing Jar by Pulitzer Prize finalist, composer/performer Kate Soper. Part monodrama, part song-cycle, part opera, Voices from the Killing Jar crosses a volatile musical landscape populated by a series of female protagonists, among them housewives, teenagers, and mothers and daughters; innocents and tragic heroines; and femmes fatales. From Madame Bovary’s passionate whirlwind of delusion, to Lady Macduff’s terrified lullaby, to Clytemnestra’s hypnotic and deadly rage, each one is brought to vivid and unforgettable life as Soper’s mercurial voice traces a path through their stories.
