Marie-Madeleine’s writings, being “contrary to societal standards on morality,” were burned, her identity secret, until the Nazis found her out as a Jewish Baroness poet with a longstanding addiction to morphine. This piece explores Marie-Madeleine as both woman and writer in a new piece for two sopranos and chamber orchestra by Rossa Crean and Aiden Feltkamp, sung by Katherine Bruton and soprano Jessie Lyons.
