A dance-opera study of grief, revenge and love built around a soprano, three dancers and a live pianist.Divine Madness explores the physicality of the soprano in the context of dance, the singer exploring her practice beyond the concert recital.

The sound score centres on using fragmented operatic extracts from arias in a context of exile, loss and revenge, including Ave Maria from Verdi’s Otello, Vissi d' Arte from Puccini’s Tosca, Ebben? n'andro lontana from Catalina’s La Wally, Morgen by Richard Strauss, O Mio Babbino Caro from Gianni Schicchi by Puccini, Song of the Moon from Dvorak’s Rusalka and None but the Lonely Heart (Op 6 No 6) by Tchaikovsky.

"Highly original and exploratory... every minute of the show is a reminder of the versatility, adaptability, resilience, discipline and strength of singers and dancers" - No More Workhorse
