Iris tells the tale of an exploited young Japanese woman and her blind father and Mascagni weaves together themes of desire, hope and tragic innocence. He aimed to create a piece that was "endlessly beautiful" and with the delicious choruses and breathtaking score he certainly succeeded.
This year, Paris-trained Anne Sophie Duprels sings the title role of Iris with the African-American tenor Noah Stewart as the heartless Osaka.
