Kaija Saariaho’s monodrama, Émilie, composed in 2008, tells the fascinating and heartbreaking story of Émilie du Chatelet, an 18th-Century pioneering French philosopher, mathematician, physicist, and author.

Here Be Sirens

GALA Hispanic Theater 3333 14th St NW, Washington, DC

Here Be Sirens, an opera by NYC-based composer Kate Soper, explores, with wit, humor and pathos, the lives of Homer's three Sirens: Peitho, Phaino, and Polyxo. As they spend eternity trapped on an island in the Mediterranean Sea, compelled to endlessly lure sailors to their deaths on the rocky shore, each Siren embarks on a unique journey to comprehend the meaning of her own existence.
