Sea Cabinet (Music by Gwyneth Herbert and Fiona Bevan; Book by Heidi James) is a song cycle of linked songs about memory, obsession, love and the sea.  A woman walks the beach alone, obsessively collecting every discarded and washed-up object she finds.  She takes them home to catalogue each one with the care and rigor of a scientist. Each item sings with the memory of a secret sea-set story.  Written and originally performed in England, this will be the U.S. premiere of the work. This 75-minute song cycle is performed in one-act with no intermission.
