Description

The intense and surreal musical narrative so apparent in Gerald Barry’s hugely successful opera The Importance of Being Earnest returns in a new guise for his latest vocal work Jabberwocky. Setting Lewis Carroll’s famous poem, Barry uses the text twice – first in French with expressive legato phrases and then more forcefully in German.
