With music by Rachel Leach the piece explores the fantastic story that leads the Greeks to build the wooden horse. As the Greeks wait in the horse to cause havoc in Troy they tell each other stories to calm their nerves. The story is told in many different and engaging ways including acting, singing, instrumental music, dance, animated film and puppetry. Performed by a multi-skilled cast of 4 professional singers and 4 professional players (violin, cello, clarinet, percussion), it is brilliantly designed and costumed. The opera is the third of three new operas based on classical myths, including Crossing the Styx, performed at Jubilee Hall a few years ago. The piece is extremely interactive and endeavours to engage with the audience on every level. The show lasts about an hour and a quarter.
