PETER MAXWELL DAVIES THE MEDIUM
Lotte Betts Dean Mezzo Soprano
Originally given its premiere in Stromness Academy Theatre in 1981, this piece follows in the tradition of Eight Songs for a Mad King and Miss Donnithorne's Maggot in being a dramatic and vocal tour-de-force for a singer. Is she a Medium, is she un-hinged, is she a poor traumatised soul? A succession of characters spring forth in this dramatic scena bringing an ever more nightmarish world to vivid life for the performer and audience.
