Remember Me

Dan / Past Projects

Remember Me is a sensual re-telling of the stories of mythical lovers Dido and Aeneas, and Orpheus and Euridice. Molitor imagines a relationship between the two women, taking the audience through their story while playing out the drama as a miniature anti-opera inside a writing desk, which the composer inherited from her grandmother.

“…An exquisitely beautiful, fragile work …captivating and deliciously bewildering in equal measure.” The Scotsman
