The story of Ethel Smyth, composer, writer and suffragette, told in her own words and compositions, in a flowing fusion of drama and music.
Performed by contralto Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus.
“Not only is Stevens a terrific actor, she is also an exceptional contralto, with a wonderful warmth and clarity of tone. Pianist Elizabeth Marcus was deeply impressive performing the fiendish orchestral reductions … Smyth’s sense of humour shone through Stevens’ spirited performance, which was funny, touching and uplifting in turn. is a magnificent entertainment that I can barely recommend highly enough.”
