Our script includes a role for a child with the voice of an angel. Happily, we found one. This young singer, Tara Boell, joined us for a morning workshop last Sunday and reduced several of us to tears with the purity of her sound. (All right! The weeping woman was me.) It’s a tricky business involving young performers in a work of this scale and when and if we get to perform the work properly we will need at least two, and perhaps three, young singers to share and cover the role of The Child. Within the work itself The Child has two scenes, with dialogue (and disguise), and two more extended sections in song. Peta Williams has written some absolutely beautiful music for TTFO, and for its oratorio-as-coda. A Song of Sometimes is one of the jewels of that work.
