Leslie Uyeda’s exuberant, virtuosic interpretation of the famous soprano aria from Gounod’s opera Roméo et Juliette.

Lesle Uyeda composed these three songs –  Owl’s Take on Man, Crow’s Take on Man and Midnight Watch – to the poetry of Lorna Crozier. The owl, the crow, the barn animals – all speak to us “at a level beyond thought”.
Crozier’s birds and animals say what we won’t, or can’t, and in their luminous language, offer a shield from our own stubbornness and folly.
