The Maids: Overture and Scene 1

Claire plays Madame, Solange plays Claire.

The opera The Maids, commissioned by the Royal Opera of Stockholm, received rave reviews and has since been staged in five different productions worldwide (Sweden, the USA, France and twice in Germany), a highly unusual accomplishment for new opera. The Maids is based on the play of the same name by Jean Genet.

  • Anna Eklund Tarantino, soprano
  • Eva Pilat, mezzo
  • The Royal Orchestra, Stockholm
  • Niklas Willén, conductor
