Glacier's Elegy is an unstaged operatic monodrama for voice, laptop and flute. Glacier's Elegy is a farewell, the final farewell. The Glacier steps forward and addresses humankind for the last time and uses references from several works of Icelandic literature to communicate. The references are from works by romantic poet Steingrímur Thorsteinsson, novelist Halldór Kiljan Laxness, modernist poet Steinn Steinarr, and from Bárðar Saga Snæfellssáss.
