A Victorian Dollhousing Ceremony Diary

A Victorian Dollhousing Ceremony is a poetic operatic adult fairytale collaboration of three poets writing in three different, distinct styles. We tell the story of three troubled characters, two rival ballerinas (one who will become The Doll, one who wishes to be The Firebird.) Then they meet a wizard/art collector of tiny things, in particular a spectacular dollhouse. Things become magical, and all of their worlds become larger and also very small.
