Russia's Ekaterina Scherbachenko performs No word from Tom from Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, in the final of the 2009 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition.

Anne Trulove is waiting anxiously for her beloved Tom to return from the city. He went off with a man called Nick Shadow and she has not heard from him since. Cruelly torn between her duty to her ailing father and her love for Tom, she finally decides she must go and search for him. Stravinsky wrote this opera to be sung in English with libretto by WH Auden and Chester Kallman based on the story in Hogarth's famous paintings and engravings with the same title.
