Jacqueline – DORA AWARD-Winning Opera on Jacqueline du Pre


Composer Luna Pearl Woolf has long used her creative voice to advocate for social and political change. ​Praised by The New York Times for its “psychological nuances and emotional depth,” her music is characterized by its dramatic intention, with a penetrating focus on music’s capacity as a storytelling language.

Woolf’s 2021 GRAMMY-nominated​ ​composer-portrait​ a​lbum​, LUNA PEARL WOOLF: Fire and Flood​, grapples with such pressing issues as climate change, poverty, zealotry, racism, gender roles and plague, through music that is as is intensely emotional as it is lyrical and complex. Particularly renowned in the field of opera, her recent operas ​Jacqueline​, Better Gods​, and The Pillar​ have been called “brilliant, profoundly moving” (Opera Going Toronto) and “Splendid…wrenching, realistic theater” (Washington Post) Her music can be heard internationally on the PENTATONE Oxingale Series.
