“When will you come my warrior, adorned in grief,
your one eyed snake wet with conquest?
My longing for you is the aim of an arrow”
The divine feminine powerfully manifests as Isis, the Ancient Egyptian goddess of love. Searching for her murdered husband, she expresses the sorrow and longing of all women whose loved ones have disappeared in conflict and oppressive regimes. Imaginary Opera presents a debut libretto by Christine Aziz. Blending electronica and contemporary music by Laura Reid with ancient forms magically transforming myth into a narrative for today.
