Program Note

Nadja explores the scorching, preposterous, inspiring and/or incomprehensible heights of feminine love and lust as experienced by both its host and quarry, along with the possibly-not-inevitable task of a soprano amidst instrumentalists to do all the emoting.

I. The protagonist of Tennyson’s poem Fatima pours out her devotion in metaphors derived from Sappho

II. Ovid tells the story of the nymph Echo who could only speak by echoing the words of others, and who fell disastrously in love with the unfeeling Narcsisuss (violin I)

III. The title character intervenes from her place in the surrealist novel by André Breton, who for a period of ten days compulsorily follows his heroine through her reality, “reality that was lying at Nadja’s feet like a lapdog.”

 I am grateful to the members of MIVOS for bringing this piece to life with me.
