Shelter is a complete chamber opera. It is a sensory exploration of forced marriage and Stockholm Syndrome where a girl is married to an old husband and held captive for an unknown time. Shelter is a powerful, immersive opera exploring attachment, ambivalence, loss of innocence and the (im)-possibility of freedom. The score is part-graphic and contains elements of vocal and musical improvisation for three voices, cello and double-bass. Shelter was funded by the Arts Council Of Wales in 2015.
