Experience an occult mystery opera, combining music, text and visual images including one of opera’s first uses of 3D film.

This film-opera follows a missing person and those who are searching for him… what connects the disappearance of a software engineer with a neurotic film-maker and a gullible patroness of the arts? Explore hoax and dark truth in this multi-layered production.

English National Opera comes to the Barbican for this brand new collaboration, a world premiere with libretto by best-selling author David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas), and score by Dutch composer Michel van der Aa, whose prize-winning music theatre piece After Life premiered here in 2010.
