NO WAY OUT
Beware! The well is poisoned. The sea is infected. Everything has been consumed. Lamentation is too late. Guilt has no positive outcome. An opera about a dystopian world affected by some form of destructive force.
This intimate new opera by the multi-talented Éna Brennan (aka Dowry) — composer, arranger, violinist and graphic designer — is a statement of horror and protest in response to the destruction of our environment. Breathwork, with a text by Olivier award-winning director David Pountney, offers a foretaste of a larger operatic collaboration that will premiere at Austria’s Bregenz Festival next year.
Running time 15-20 minutes.
Six performances daily.
Sung in English.
