Originally composed as a student work, this piece was substantially revised in 2016.

The music revolves around a single repeated note, from which emerges a dance then a song, portraying the mental - and physical - descent of Shakespeare's tragic character.

After Ophelia was conceived and composed for a female cellist; there are short phrases of sung material in the final sections of the piece in the range of a woman’s voice. The phrases should ideally sound quite soft, fragile and insecure, and they don’t call for a highly developed vocal technique!
