Based on his grandmother's diaries, the premiere of Philip Brownlee's opera was reviewed by Alan Wells in The Listener. "Here, recorded natural sounds were juxtaposed with live ensemble, taped oral history and its artistically sung rendition, and youthful experience with aging memory."
Commissioned by The Pocket Opera of Wellington with funding from Creative New Zealand.
Composer, edited from oral history recordings of his grandmother
23 May 1997: Performed by Pocket Opera of Wellington; Bats Theatre, Wellington
