I beg you / Take me away from here.
Based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story, this opera fragment tells of a woman confined to the attic room of a rented country home, ostensibly to recover from an illness. As the weeks go by, she becomes obsessed with the yellow wallpaper and its peculiar patterns — and is convinced that there is a woman trapped behind it.
