OUT OF HER MOUTH
Cantatas by Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre
In partnership with HERA, Mahogany Opera and the National Centre for Early Music
Programme: Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre Cantates Bibliques: ‘Judith’, ‘Rachel’ & ‘Susanne’
Elizabeth Jacquet de la Guerre’s twelve biblical cantatas are extraordinary historical jewels. Written by a woman, about women, for women, they tell bold, unflinching tales about love, marriage, tragedy and adultery, each one a tiny opera in all but name. These breath-taking miniatures have never before been staged in the UK and will receive their Scottish premieres (more than 300 years after they were composed) in three atmospheric, fully accessible settings.
Produced in partnership with HERA and Mahogany Opera, Out of Her Mouth champions the ability of women to tell their own stories and narrate their own experiences — and invites you to listen.
‘Bold and moving — a piercing reminder of how the past haunts the present’
