Cased full score
…Shatter the printing press. Make each new book a precious object written on skin.'
Martin Crimp, extract from Written on Skin
The birth of any opera is a special event. The birth of Written on Skin has been extraordinary. It is once in generation, or even a lifetime, that a new opera receives such unanimous acclaim and so many major performances within its first few years. To reflect the remarkable impact of this opera, Faber Music is releasing its very own ‘precious object’, a limited edition of the full score signed by the composer. One hundred and fifty copies of this First Edition have been produced as a special limited edition and are numbered, signed by the composer and included in a special presentation slipcase.
