Wonder Woman - A One Act Song Cycle
25th May 2019
Wonder Woman - A One Act Song Cycle (No not the cartoon super-heroine, it’s about a woman... who wonders) performed at 7.30pm
Wonder Woman started life as a piece called 'A View from the Bottom' written by the Canadian born / UK based musician / composer Jamie Moore for the George Benjamin Ensemble (piano, flute, cello and soprano) and was performed at a workshop at the University of Nottingham. Jamie later developed and expanded the composition reworking it for piano, bass, drums, guitar, percussion, cello, flute and jazz vocalist. He renamed it Wonder Woman - A One Act Song Cycle and it received excellent reviews when premiered.
Following a meeting with soprano Laure Meloy and hearing her sing, Jamie decided to revisit Wonder Woman and rewrite it for a quartet to feature Laure’s remarkable voice. Laure Meloy is an acclaimed opera singer who has performed internationally with companies including The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, The Welsh National Opera, Opera North, Wiener Staatsoper and The Metropolitan Opera.
The performance of Wonder Woman will be preceded by a set performed by the new Jamie Moore Ensemble with Jack Greenslade (keyboards) Dave Robinson (percussion and vibraphone) Clive Fletcher (acoustic and electric bass) and Jamie Moore (guitars and vocals).
