A Lone Woman: An Experimental Opera

I decided to write an opera about a year ago. The process is slow but exciting. What I post here is in progress and experimental (for now).

The story focuses on the German folktale of Loreley, the spiritual embodiment of the steep rock on the bank of the River Rhine at Sankt Goarshausen. I take the existing folklore and give Loreley the opportunity to speak for herself, something sirens so rarely get to do.
