Here Be Sirens

Here Be Sirens, by American Kate Soper, explores with wit, humor, and pathos, the experience of Homer's Odyssean three singers. Here Be Sirens is a remarkable work by a remarkable composer. At once whimsical, witty, wondrous, and weird, this opera portrays the three mythical sirens pondering the meaning of their own beings, the tension of their history and their future, between brief pauses when they woo, wound, and consume the poor sailors passing by. Performed by three sopranos and a piano they themselves manipulate, the work combines singing, speaking, extended vocal techniques, and a wry approach to lyrical anthropology which conjures laughter and contemplation. Kate Soper is without doubt one the most exciting composers in America today, with a truly original voice as both composer and a soprano. Here Be Sirens is just one of her many surprising and powerful compositions for female voices, which use clarity and intelligence to shatter preconceived notions of form and balance.
