Several student-composed arias written about World War I, in celebration of the lives of the nurses and soldiers who convalesced at St. Fagans when it served as a military hospital. Performed on site at St Fagans museum, my role was to scout the right sites for each piece and select appropriate period costume to fit the characters.
