A new opera about the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison
The first performance (in fact, 3 performances) will take place at the Hippodrome theatre in the town of Todmorden in West Yorkshire, in late June 2013, 100 years (almost to the day) after the untimely death of the opera's subject, the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison.
A preview production of Act 1, Prologue and Scene 1 was presented at the New Music North West festival at the RNCM in Manchester, March 2012, by the opera company Re:Sound. A selection of photos is available here.

David Clements was a much-loved teacher of brass and music theory at Christ's Hospital school, in Horsham, Sussex. Many of his students went on to very successful musical careers, and some of them (including Tim Benjamin) decided to build an e-learning music theory website. Mr Clements was such a great teacher that we decided to name the site in his honour - hence Clements Theory.

Kauppe is Tim Benjamin's alter ego, or "act", when it comes to electronic music. While he's always liked fiddling with synthesizers, tone generators, sequencers and the like, it's only very recently that Tim has decided to get composing in earnest in the medium, and also to think about gigging. So, armed with Ableton Live and some analog / virtual analog synths, he's done just this.
