Time to say goodbye: Moonlight /The Last Seed at Tête à Tête

Directed with witty skill by Bill Bankes-Jones, Tête à Tête’s Artistic Founder and Director, these two imaginative and appealing short operas made for an enchanting hour at Kings Place.

Reducing her scale slightly (Moonlight has a much smaller cast, and is significantly shorter than last year’s The Fisherman’s Brides) seems to have allowed young Highland composer Lucie Treacher to create a more focused sound, and the result was a successful, joyous adventure into a fully-realised magical world.

More aggressively contemporary in feel than Moonlight, with overtones of T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land in its repeated cries of “Time, gentlemen, please!”, Na’ama Zisser‘s The Last Seed sustains an intriguing, uncomfortable mood.
