about

Seduction to dive below the waves…

Selkie, a sea tale is Elliot Cole’s lush musical setting of fairytale poetry by soprano Misha Penton.

Selkies are ephemeral half-human, half-seal beings. They are transformative creatures that inhabit liminal spaces; exist at the edge of dusk and dawn; in the between-time of solstice and equinox; and where root meets earth and sea washes sand. When the moon swells to its fullest, Selkies shed their seal skins, reveal their human form, and dance on our northernmost beaches— their skins ready for the taking. Selkie, a sea tale’s poetry is a dreamscape of human fragility, longing and loss, written from a sailor’s wife to a her selkie love, and culminates in her willingness to release him back to the sea…
