Unwilling to marry a woman, a man fashions a lover from his own left side. He's enraptured by her perfect beauty – a mirror of his own – until he discovers that this new woman longs for freedom and wildly desires another. South Asian and Baroque music and performance traditions meet in a stunning new masque based on a traditional Indian folk tale. A powerful & timely allegory of the female and male warring within, told through music, words and movement.

Palmer’s music deliciously captures Chatterton’s witty text. [Stitch] is a triumph for all the artists.” —

- Paula Citron, Classical 96.3 FM, on Stitch by Chatterton & Palmer
