as some of you might recall, I posted the first aria of this mini opera project several months ago.
As I have finally finished composing it, I'm here again to post the entire opera. Following your precious suggestions, I have scored a piano and a chamber orchestra reduction, just in case some composition contests require such instrumentation.
I have also made an abridged version of the original play by E. Dowson (it's in public domain), which significantly reduce the time of the spoken parts (around 10 mins), for a total duration (arias + spoken parts) of around 25-30 mins.
At the following URLs you'll find the six arias, each of which lasts around two minutes. As I have recently been able to find a female singer (not an opera one) and recording is still a work in progress, a couple of arias feature a real singer whereas the other still make use of synth vocalizations.
I hope you''l give this work a chance and let me know whether it's a decent work or not and where it needs to be improved.
Thank you all so much, for your time and patience.
