The rose elf

Rose - beautiful, blooming rose - Samantha Hankey
00:00 / 00:00

"With her supple mezzo, Samantha Hankey transforms the meaning of the smothered Elf’s distressed cries from inside a rose placed over the Beloved’s (still-beating) heart. Her gushing consonants, fondling portamentos and libidinous low notes on the line “the white heat of his flesh makes me sweat” convey intense carnal—even sadomasochistic—desire. In a Liebestod on behalf of the dead couple, Hankey flits nymphlike through Hertzberg’s idiomatically graceful vocal writing, building up to the climactic “Apocalypse of Petals.”

The wake world

Is that you my love... Come my dear one - Samantha Hankey
00:00 / 00:00

"Equally strong is mezzo-soprano Samantha Hankey, as the Fairy Prince, Lola’s love and guide, especially in the Prince’s extended aria “Come, my dear one, my darling,” a setting of a poem by Crowley that serves as the apotheosis of the drama."
