Tour archive for After Life (Opera or Operetta). 15th May 2010-15th May 2010 [TOUR]


Semi-staged. Which one memory would you choose to take to eternity? This is the question posed by After Life. The opera’s characters are about to trade their earthly existence for a place in heaven and are allowed to choose a key moment from their lives to relive in the form of a film that they can take with them to eternity. Skilfully combining live stage action with film, music and an electro-acoustic sound-world, After Life uses multiple perspectives to explore our human need to discover meaning in the ordinary details of everyday life.
