the lingerer

     “The Lingerer” is an 8 minute work selected as a finalist for the English National Operas “Mini-Operas” competition. The Iibretto, by Lori Ann Stephens, is about a woman who lost her six-year-old son six months prior. While she sleeps, she dreams of a little league field where her son used to play. When the game ends and it’s time to wake up, she tries to stay in the dream with her son. Her consciousness, represented as a janitor, explains that it’s time to leave and move on. The performers on this recording are Amy Stewart and Corey Roberts.
