The Four Temperaments

Burrell, Diana

About the work

The text comes from the ‘Kalevala’, and the Old Testament (Jeremiah, Psalms and Job). The players should speak the lines quite matter-of-factly and fairly fast. Individual meaning is not meant to come across.

First Performance: COMA, 31 May 2003, Assembly Rooms, Bath Festival
