The Locked Door by Gemma McGregor world premiere 

Promoted by sound and the University of Aberdeen

The Locked Door, a new chamber opera, is based on real events that took place in Sussex during World War II. Composer Ralph Vaughan Williams is at home with his wife, Adeline, when an air raid starts and an unexpected visitor arrives. Ralph must go to carry out his wartime duties as fire-watcher, leaving Adeline with this much younger woman who loves Vaughan Williams and has broken social etiquette by coming to the marital home.
