Love Redux

Scene for Mezzo-soprano, Tenor, and Piano

2012 | libretto by Hannah Moscovitch | 4 minutes 30 seconds

Love Redux is an opera scene about Helen of Troy and Paris with a modern twist. It was written at Tapestry Opera’s Composer-Librettist Laboratory in Toronto and premiered at Tapestry Briefs, a staged showcase of opera shorts.

One of the best episodes was Moscovitch and Pesetsky’s Love Redux, a look at Helen of Troy and Paris some time into their relationship, when her ardour doesn’t quite match his.
