'Peacekeeping' (45 munud) - Hanes aml-haenog yw'r opera siambr seicolegol hyfryd hon am fasnachu pobl ar gyfer pedwar llais - y Delyn, obo, sielo ac offerynnau taro.   Comisiwn newydd gan Tŷ Cerdd ar gyfer 2017-18. 

‘The Filmmaker and The Organ Trader' (30 munud) - Sgôr electronig arswydus sy’n cael ei ddylanwadu gan synau diwydiannol, gwahanol fathau o drafnidiaeth, a synau o du mewn i’r corff. Stori gariad anghyffredin rhwng clowniau sy'n ein gwahodd i ymchwilio i’w byd tywyll, proffidiol o gynaeafu’r corff a masnachu organau. Comisiwn a ariannwyd drwy ddull ariannu torfol yn 2016.

Mae Asking4It Productions yn cael ei gefnogi’n hael gan Ganolfan 

Mileniwm Cymru; Tŷ Cerdd/ Music House Wales; Coleg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru; Opera’r Ddraig, thrwy ein cyllidwyr torfol ac Joyce Watson AC. Diolch yn fawr.
