About Silk Moth

A woman, alone, wrestles with the part she played in her daughter’s downfall. Is she vulnerable? Or complicit? Bushra El-Turk‘s hard-hitting, contemporary opera Silk Moth is presented alongside compositions from Liza Lim and Cassandra Miller in a new production by London chamber orchestra Ruthless Jabiru. A stellar cast of singers and conducted ensemble weave together Arabic and Western musical traditions, examining the complex tragedies of honour crime, family violence, and female (dis)empowerment in Britain and beyond. Sung in English without surtitles. Age Recommendation: 12+
