An Operatic Fantasia on Selling the Skin and the Teeth
Victorian Opera presents ’Tis Pity, an operatic fantasia by Richard Mills. This commissioned new work reunites the creative forces of international chanteuse Meow Meow and director Cameron Menzies, following their acclaimed production of Kurt Weill’s 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.
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.
