Joanne Roughton-Arnold: Iris Dreaming

From Saturday Morning, 11:35 am on 4 February 2017

New Zealand soprano Joanne Roughton-Arnold is performing a one woman opera at the ADAM Chamber Concert Festival. Iris Dreaming, written by Gillian Whitehead and Fleur Adcock, is based on the life of New Zealand writer and pioneering feminist, Iris Wilkinson, who wrote under the pseudonym Robin Hyde. Her most famous novel The Godwits Fly was published shortly before she took her own life in 1938.
