Out of Her Mouth

The biblical cantatas of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre are extraordinary historical jewels. Written by a woman, about women and for women, they tell bold, unflinching tales about love, marriage, tragedy and adultery. These breath-taking miniatures – telling the stories of Susanne, Rachel & Judith – have never before been staged in the UK; now, produced in new English translations by Toria Banks, they champion the ability of women to tell their own stories and narrate their own experiences.

A co-production between Dunedin Consort, Hera & Mahogany Opera
