The Wanton Sublime by Tarik O'Regan (Heart of Darkness) with a libretto by New York’s award-winning feminist poet Anna Rabinowitz (Darkling), is a ground-breaking electro-acoustic work for mezzo-soprano and chamber ensemble explores the human and mythic aspects of the Virgin Mary, who struggles to retain her flesh and blood identity in the face of external forces intent on symbolising her as the ideal woman.

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“The Wanton Sublime is musically rich... and also philosophically absorbing... Hai-Ting Chinn's account... was a tour de force. ”

Mark Valencia (What's On Stage)

“Singular performances of operatic monologues that intriguingly explore, respectively, madness and a tough calling. ”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“No audience member for this double-bill is more than a few metres away from the singer, stunningly accomplished Hai-Ting Chinn. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Contrasting short operas linked by a pair of compelling performances... Chinn completely holds the stage... A wonderful finale. ”
