    The Battle of Stamford Bridge is looming.

    A single soprano enters the space. All of a sudden she is King Harald, then the ghost of Saint Olaf, then Harald's wives, then the men of his kingdom.

    This exciting and short contemporary opera tells the tragedy of King Harald in a demanding and engaging ten minute performance.

    This unique aural drama, as the soprano flits between roles and perspectives, will aim to engage and draw out Judith Weir's deeply engaging and unique music, convincing us all not only of each role but of the deep emotional responses behind them.
