(Tippett: The Midsummer Marriage). Cont. A clairvoyant, summoned by King Fisher to untangle the mysteries surrounding his daughter and her fiancé and their rather strange friends who dance before the temple on midsummer day. Sosostris is a vague figure, not really human, more like an oracle of ancient times. ‘I am what has been, is and shall be’. Created (1955) by Oralia Dominguez.
