Description

The Country in Her Throat is about Emma Albani, Canada's first operatic superstar. She was born in 1847 in Chambly, Quebec, as Emma Lajeunesse and made her debut at Covent Garden in 1872 at the age of 25. But this is by no means a biographical play, but rather, a play that uses Albani's career as a way of exploring other themes. Fortin refracts Albani's bright career through the memories of her sister Cornelia, a pianist who accompanied, in both senses, the soprano throughout her early career, and arrived in London with her. The country in Emma's throat is both the idealized country of art, and also the very real country that they left behind and to which they can never return.
