The Woven Song, Embassy Tapestry Series is the latest international project by Short Black Opera featuring nine new compositions by Deborah Cheetham AO. The project celebrates works of art from an ancient culture, reinterpreted and recreated by the exceptional weavers at the Australian Tapestry Workshop, inspiring a contemporary response in current classical music practice. It is an innovative project that breathes new life into each work, honouring the artistic excellence of the artists involved in creating these three-dimensional works of cultural expression.
The first in the series of nine compositions premiered at the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay in Singapore on May 5 with featured artists from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, the West Australian Symphony Orchestra along side the composer.
