Rose Miranda Hall is an award winning composer whose work focuses on narratives that challenge common preconceptions through opera and contemporary music theatre. Her work has been performed across the UK, in Germany, Hong Kong and Canada. Rose was awarded second prize in the International Wolf Durmashkin Composition Award 2018 for ‘Mein Schatten’, which was premiered by tenor Yoed Sorek and the Bavarian Philharmonic in Landsberg am Lech. Current projects include opera ‘Dead Equal’ which will headline Summerhall’s [email protected] 2019. With libretto by Lila Palmer, ‘Dead Equal’ weaves the extraordinary story of the only British woman to fight in WWI with verbatim reports from today's female soldiers, exposing the struggle of women at war for equality, past and present. Further projects include: ’The Jewel Merchants’, a participatory community chamber opera written alongside mental health service users and staff in collaboration with poet David Gilbert, and ‘when we unpack it, we will be home’, where alongside 14 composers from around the world, they tell the story of a mother and daughter finding a new home. In 2019 Rose was chosen alongside five female composers to have their compositions workshopped by Wild Plum Arts at PRS for Music with mentorship from Errollyn Wallen and Joanna Lee.
