Liza Lim

Liza Lim is an Australian composer, educator and researcher whose music focusses on collaborative and transcultural practices. Her four operas: The Oresteia (1993), Moon Spirit Feasting (2000), The Navigator (2007) and Tree of Codes (2016) explore themes of desire, memory and spiritual transformation. Her genre-crossing percussion ritual/opera Atlas of the Sky (2018), is a work involving community participants that investigates the emotional power and energy dynamics of crowds. Tree of Codes, commissioned by Cologne Opera, Musikfabrik and Hellerau was described as ‘a major contribution to the music theatre of our time’ (Egbert Hiller, 2016) and had the distinction of receiving a new production at the Spoleto Festival, USA in May/June 2018.
