The Devil Inside is a gritty, glittery, Faustian folktale, set firmly in the twenty-first century.
Inspired by The Bottle Imp, a short story by Robert Louis Stevenson, this brand-new opera echoes his most famous tale The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
Two friends stumble upon a bottle that will change their lives; a bottle that can grant any wish. But there’s a catch, and the bottle demands a payment. Will the pair find their happy-ever-after or will the bottle be their undoing?
This evening of magic and enchantment, with a touch of Tales of the Unexpected, will keep you guessing, and leave you thinking “be careful what you wish for”.
