About usEscape escapism through this new live work – a vivid, multi-musical opera about greed, aspiration and freedom.

Are you really here?
How do you know you are?
Are you looking for confirmation from the person sitting next to you?
Do they know you?
How do they recognise you?
Come and experience this colourful, comi-tragic take on the cycle of life featuring sixteen new multi-genre musical compositions across three acts.
"This comic opera, in the tradition of an English ballad or German singspiele, features solo odes, songs, ensembles, chorus and drama, interspersed with dialogue……This is art that brings the subjects down to earth and engages with the everyday."
Niki Russell, Art Monthly
