Beware! The well is poisoned. The sea is infected. Everything has been consumed. Lamentation is too late. Guilt has no positive outcome. An opera about a dystopian world affected by some form of destructive force.

This intimate new opera by the multi-talented Éna Brennan (aka Dowry) — composer, arranger, violinist and graphic designer — is a statement of horror and protest in response to the destruction of our environment. Breathwork, with a text by Olivier award-winning director David Pountney, offers a foretaste of a larger operatic collaboration that will premiere at Austria’s Bregenz Festival next year.

Running time 15-20 minutes.
Six performances daily.

28 – 30 Sep: 3pm, 4pm, 5pm, 7pm, 8pm & 9pm

Sung in English.
