Scottish Opera: Anthropocene

This production contains strobe, flashing lights, haze and a pyrotechnic.

In the frozen Arctic wastelands, an expeditionary team of scientists becomes trapped. Tensions rise and relationships crumble; and then something appears, out of the ice...

The award-winning team behind 2016’s five-star The Devil Inside returns with a gripping new work. This fourth collaboration between composer Stuart MacRae and librettist Louise Welsh promises a night of unrelenting dramatic tension and superb storytelling. Director Matthew Richardson once again teams up with designer Samal Blak to bring MacRae and Welsh's work to the stage.

Scottish Opera Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts.

Commissioned by Scottish Opera. Sung in English with English supertitles. Supported by Scottish Opera’s New Commissions Circle.
