Elyssa Vulpes is a likeable performer, and her singing voice has a beautiful clarity to it ”

Niki Boyle- The Scotsman

Vulpes’ bitter-sweet songs, delivered with simple clarity of self-accompanied guitar which shows off her own vocal talents to charming effect. ”

An uplifting humorous tale of a Croatian refugee turned sex counsellor
Edinburgh Festival Fringe – 4-14 August
 

FRONT LINE
Be a Soldier of Love!
Created and performed by international musician and performer Elyssa Vulpes, Front Line tells the story of Sophia, a refugee from the Bosnian war who has made a new life for herself in Scotland as an offbeat sex education high school counsellor. This world premiere musical play features original songs and is directed by award-winning NYC-based director Mahayana Landowne. Sophia discovers her inner wisdom as she faces issues of romance, sexuality and self-doubt while reconciling her troubled past.
 
Biella Festival's 2010 award winner Elyssa Vulpes writes and stars in an original life affirming play in which self-effacing comedy, audience interaction and light hearted songs uplift the spirit. Front Line explores the power of 'agape' (universal unconditional love) as a means of transcending personal and global challenges towards a more positive future. The marriage of song and situation create a playful character who invites you into her quirky world - together you will expand your perspective on the deeper meaning of love.

Elyssa Vulpes
Elyssa is a singer songwriter, recording artist, writer, improv performer and therapist who is herself an immigrant, having left her native Italian shores behind to live in New Zealand, London and Ireland, finally finding a home in Scotland.

“[Elyssa] has a strong and beautiful voice, echoing Loreena McKennit or PJ Harvey… charming, beguiling, and slightly teary… it's rich, folk story-telling with a gothic edge.”
