(2017)a mini opera based on palindromic word-play
The libretto for Madam Adam is a concoction of single-word palindromes and palindromic sentences which have been forged to create a single scene.
The scene is set in Dr Awkward’s consulting room - a tired old shrink. He and his secretary - Madam - prove themselves to be less than professional in the care of a slightly mad young man calling himself Adam - “’Tis Ivan on a visit; drab as a fool, as aloof as a bard!”.
