In the lounge bar of the Hôtel du Paradis we meet a man who tells us about his lost love. A woman then arrives who starts to talk about her failed relationship. Slowly it appears that he is Adam and she is Lilith, Adam’s first wife in Jewish mythology, who was created as Adam’s equal. Lilith refused to submit to Adam, and finally decided to leave Paradise. They recount their tragic love story, ending in a dramatic finale.

With Lilith, opera singer Claron McFadden stages an emotionally charged music theatre performance, combining contemporary classical music, jazz, sampling, acting, film and poetry to ask some fundamental questions about the relationship between man and woman, and between man and God.
