Work Title

Reviews of spare elegance and vivid drama.
Graham Rickson, The Arts Desk, 6/3/2017

Elias is lucky to have performers as committed as Susan Bickley, who is the intense soloist in Electra Mourns, a scalding outpouring of grief and outrage, sung in Sophocles’s original Greek. Roderick Williams joins her in affecting, unaccompanied settings of poet John Clare, and Psappha play brilliantly in Geranos, Elias’s reimagining of an ancient Greek ritual dance.
Richard Fairman, Financial Times, 7/14/2017
