Music by Lucie Treacher

Produced by The Opera Story
“In just seven dates, we can guarantee you will find your true love’s destiny... Seven dates, seven sins. Each written by a different team of composers and librettists, in a multimedia format."
Review by Seen and Heard International : "The music for ‘Sloth’ is a brilliant realisation of the animal (composer Lucie Treacher doing the honours here) while Henry Waddington makes the most of the long – ever so long – vocal melismas.... Rarely have I seen a production as inspiring as this. In a tiny performance space (audience probably around 30-40 max), via the wizardry of electronics and with clear reference to the way we communicate and have communicated via screens mid- and post-pandemic, we are reminded of eternal myths and truths. Amazing."
