Emma-Ruth Richards ‘Secure the ghosts’ for 12:42 National Opera Studio

Emma-Ruth Richards

We are delighted to share the video of Emma-Ruth Richards’ commissioned new work for the National Opera Studio project 12:42.

Emma-Ruth was one of the 12 composers commissioned to write an aria with 12 librettists to mark the National Opera Studio 40th anniversary year.

Emma-Ruth Richards wrote the aria Secure the ghosts from the imagined opera Celeste, libretto by Nicola Chalmers, for soprano Eliza Boom and her répétiteur Somi Kim.

Synopsis: Celeste is trying to recall her voice. She has been marked out for a role she would rather not have accepted, and she is in need of a powerful sound.

You can also watch the 12:42 documentary on OperaVision, which was produced almost entirely in quarantine, exploring creative processes, isolation and digital connections.

Composers Edition is proud to publish Emma-Ruth Richards’ music, including Secure the Ghosts, which is available in our catalogue for perusal and purchase.
