A Chamber Opera by Michael Nyman, with libretto by Christopher Rawlence, Michael Morris, and Oliver Sacks, based on his book.
When one sense fails us, another takes over—and lets us live with newfound joy.
Based on Oliver Sacks’ cherished book, this story of a musician who loses his sight challenges all we know about how we view the world. It’s a potent parable is a deeply empathetic, singularly moving event. This chamber opera features a seven-piece orchestra, three sterling singers, and a vibrant video projection that promise to let us see life more clearly and brightly than ever before.
Expect a multi-sensory experience that sharpens the senses and stirs the soul.
Cladera, Boos, and Seamans hope to again marry sublime music and visuals, as they did for The Winter’s Tale, Ainadamar, and Maria de Buenos Aires.
