Sunken Garden at The Barbican has been running since Friday 12th and will continue to run until Saturday 20th April 2013. You can experience opera in a truly unique and innovative way with this mysterious occult opera. The show is truly mesmerising, combining music, text and, for the first time ever, 3D film.
The opera follows the story of a missing software engineer, and may you watch in fascination as this multi-layered production delves into the hoax and sinister truths that lie behind this disappearance, and how a film maker and gullible arts lover become entangled in the plot.
One of the most fascinating things about this opera is its unique use of live and recorded images, indeed this is the first time ever that opera has used 3D film technology. The effect of this should be truly amazing, and the opera promises to be is an audio-visual masterpiece that delights all the senses.
Those who are lucky enough to get tickets to see the opera will be blessed with a libretto from the legendary Cloud Atlas novelist, David Mitchell, along with a score by Dutch composer, Michel Van Der Aa, his work has also had critical acclaim and audiences of this latest collaboration can expect to be absolutely stunned by his music as much as the amazing effects on stage.
