A ghost family that finds no rest. A 14-year-old Goth girl who finds the afterlife is nothing to write home about—wherever home is for the lost and the dead.
Based on poems by Felix CHEONG, Eve and the Lost Ghost Family is a Gothic tale about the hereafter, set to music by award-winning composer TAN Yuting (CSS Student Member). Sung by renowned soprano Christina THÉ and accompanied by harpist Charity KIEW, these are art songs as you’ve never heard it before—ethereal, dark and deadpan funny.
Singaporean composer TAN Yuting writes music that explores the interaction of different sounds to form unique harmonies and textures. Her past collaborations include performances with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, Peabody Symphony Orchestra, Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, Ensemble Dal Niente and Ensemble Soundinitiative. Tan also enjoys working with artists from other fields.
Felix CHEONG is the author of 18 books across different genres. His libretto At One Time, written with composer Jonathan SHIN, won Third Prize at the New Opera Composition Open Call. Another libretto Panic Love, written with composer CHEN Zhangyi, made its debut in Jan 2021.
Christina THÉ is a soprano and former Artist-of-Residence of New Opera Singapore. She is also the author of the bestselling book Diary of a Former Covidiot. Her next book Misadventures of a Little Soprano will be in stores April.
Charity KIEW is a harpist who has performed with orchestras like Berlin Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and Singapore Symphony Orchestra. She won the Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal Award at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music (YSTCM).
