The classical Greek myth of the nymph Echo and her fatal love for the beautiful Narcissus is transformed into an enchanting new chamber opera.

The lovely and lonely Echo falls for Narcissus who has eyes only for his own reflection. Their tragic love story is overseen by a chorus of wicked and witty nymphs.

With music that draws on the baroque sound of Purcell and Monteverdi, this opera of love and longing is as classical as it is contemporary and a must for all music lovers.

Composer Anja Djordjevic was composer-in-residence at the International Composerís Centre in Sweden and the winner of the prestigious Stevan Mokranjac prize for Narcissus and Echo.

Sung in English.
