What version of Anne Frank are you familiar with? Did you know that passages of The Diary of Anne Frank were censored and redacted?
Inspired by the original, unedited texts of the diary, Loose Tea Music Theater created Singing Only Softly. This Chamber opera voices Anne Frank as a fully formed young woman describing her experiences while discovering herself. Freshly interpreted in a current female context, it explores Anne's complex self awareness and self representation.

“The expressive possibilities of this scale of work, with a couple of singers & a piano are enormous... Viau / Pearce / Livingston gave their creation the precision focus of a laser”
