FANNY ROBIN - an opera by Edward Harper
A lovely little one-act opera based on scenes from Thomas Hardy novels, the titel role was written for Jane Manning who sings here. Musically it is a companion piece to Purcell's Dido and Aeneas with fragments of Purcell's mucic quoted in the epilogue and alluded to throughout.

|“In the still undervalued genre of chamber opera, Fanny Robin deserves more frequent performances. Scottish Opera's production is captured to telling spatial effect.” - Richard Whitehouse (Gramophone)|
