In a muddied nightdress, in a country kitchen, Violet finally smiles. For years, her tired daily routine has been dictated by the inescapable chime of the Clock Tower, until one night she feels time quicken. Suddenly an hour is lost - every day. As the hours disappear, long-held certainties evaporate and ordered society falls into disarray. With the townspeople in crisis, can Violet finally escape? Sung in English. A co-production for the Aldeburgh Festival by Britten Pears Arts and Music Theatre Wales. Production staged in association with the London Sinfonietta. Commissioned by Britten Pears Arts and Music Theatre Wales supported by Theater Ulm.
