Details

A chamber opera. A blend of music, drama and visual image based on Chekhov's Three Sisters. In December 1900 the lighthouse supply ship Hesperus, based in Stromness, Orkney, went on its routine tour of duty to the Flannan Isles lighthouse in the Outer Hebrides. The lighthouse was empty. All three beds and the table looked as if they had been left in a hurry and the lamp, through out was in perfect working order. The men had disappeared into thin air. The play explores what might have happened in the days and hours leading up to this mysterious discovery.
