Sunken Garden teaser

English National Opera is giving the premiere of Michel van der Aa's new opera Sunken Garden at the Barbican Centre on 12 April 2013, with a run of just 7 performances. The work uses a libretto by the novelist David Mitchell (author of Cloud Atlas) and the piece will be using technology to create 'a truly immersive experience', we are promised live performance combined with 3D film. The plot is something of a mystery story and promises to be rather dark. The cast includes Roderick Williams, Katherine Manley and Claron McFaddon and will be conducted by Andre de Ridder. ENO have released a couple of teaser videos and you can see one after the break.
