It all started when I went to a poet’s house for tea. One day I decided to buy a book of poetry as a birthday present for my friend and I thought, why not have it signed? So I contacted the poet, Elísabet Jökulsdóttir, who invited me in for tea. We started chatting and when the she learned that I was a singer she got me to improvise a melody to one of the poems and there we found out that actually this book of poetry was indeed libretto to an opera. The only thing missing was the music but with composer Anna Halldórsdóttir on board that problem was solved. I got Spindrift theatre involved, we were joined by amazing people including Júlía Mogensen the cellist and Bergdís Júlía directed the concert version of the performance for which we were granted artists' salary to produce. This project is so close to my heart and I really look forward to developing it further.
