‘While There’s Light’ is a work-in-progress selection from composer Sarah Sarhandi and Vincent Katz’s opera based on Katz’s award-winning translations of the love poems of 1st century BCE Roman poet Sextus Propertius. Katz and Sarhandi are crafting an evening’s performance that tells a story of love, lust, obsession, mistrust, hatred, death, and immortality, set against the context, relevant today as then, of a relentlessly militaristic society. Sarhandi is composing a score with classical structures that also draws on dance music. Voices, instruments and Sarah’s distinctive viola combine with and are contrasted against electronica in intimate interludes and large layered soundscapes.
