Only Connect

Music & Words: Julian Grant

When lost souls collide and words fail.


The General

Music & Words: Dominique Le Gendre

As he walks in a noisy street, and oblivious to the possibility of being understood, a man in his late 30’s, speaks in French on his mobile phone of his budding romance with the General’s young daughter.



Music & Words: Robert Fokkens

Two people argue loudly in the street. It isn’t clear why they are arguing. It isn’t clear whether they know each other. It doesn’t look like it is going to stop. But it IS clear that things could turn ugly.


Just Bloody Schmooze the Woman!

Music & Words: Stephen Crowe

A comic opera about two singers who try to woo their colleagues after rehearsal- and after a few sherries.
