As Sudden Shut
Composer:Anna Clyne
Librettist:Steve Weiner
Synopsis
Set for three female voices and chamber ensemble, As Sudden Shut is the first in a collection of poems by Emily Dickinson. This opening movement is marked by simplicity. Later movements, which set related poems by Dickinson, become fractured, more complex and wild, incorporating pre-recorded electro-acoustic layers within the chamber ensemble, as the depths of her psyche are unveiled.

Through the settings of these poems, Dickinson is portrayed alone in her room; a confined space wherein magical worlds are imagined, remembered and incarnated. They breathe into the space, and bleed through the walls and windows to the sky.
