An opera for three sopranos and grand piano by Kate Soper, directed by Héctor Alvarez.

Set on a Mediterranean island in the pre-archaic Greek past and the post-apocalyptic U.S. future, the opera follows three Sirens (Polyxo, Peitho, and Phaino) caught in a purgatorial state, destined to lure sailors to their deaths for eternity. Desperate to break the cycle, Polyxo tries to determine how the Sirens came to be.

Presented by the California Institute of the Arts at Roy O. Disney Concert Hall (May 2023).
