Video of ‘The Navigator’ opera online

The full video documentation of my opera The Navigator (2008), libretto by Patricia Sykes, now appears on the Institute of Musical Research (University of London) website as part of their ‘New Music Insight’ series.  The video was filmed in the Judith Wright Centre just prior to the premiere in Brisbane in July 2008 with the ELISION Ensemble conducted by Manuel Nawri, and theatre direction by Barrie Kosky.
