Grief Opera Album

The Grief Opera, a collaboration between Vladimir and Nigel Linacre, is available now, on streaming services, and on CD at Prima Facie Records.

Nigel Linacre started writing the lyrics for The Grief Opera when his son, George, died by his own hand. Vladimir Miller used George’s rhythms as a foundation for the music he composed.

The Grief Opera is somewhere between a small-scale opera, a standing concert and a musical, in which amateur singers, narrators and musicians are joined by Vladimir Miller on piano, and international opera star Neil Latchman and rock singer Keri Farish as lead vocalists, in a community initiative promoting Suicide Awareness. The Grief Opera is profoundly emotional, and has been described as “harrowing but ultimately uplifting”.
