BAC’s latest effervescent opera season begins with this offering from Madestrange.
Caught in a downward spiral of detachment, a man is looking for love. Haunted by someone who may or may not be Dennis Nilsen, his search leads him into a world, both real and virtual, of fetishism, eroticism, violence, and ultimately death. Black And Blue exploits new technologies such as internet chat rooms and video conferencing to toy with the audience’s perception and explore the chasm between sex and intimacy.
