Your Daughter Fanny

A deeply moving 45 minute chamber opera by Alice Ho for female voice, violin, and piano which was commissioned through the WW100 Living Memorial Commemoration Fund from Memorial University of Newfoundland for soprano Caroline Schiller and Duo Concertante. The libretto, written by CBC Canada Reads winner Lisa Moore, is based on war letters written by the Newfoundland Victorian Aid Detachment nurse Frances Cluett who was stationed in Europe during World War I. Using intimate theatre setting with acting, narration, staging, lighting, costumes and slide show images of World War I, this extraordinary work offers an intimate and rare perspective of war through female eyes.
