A Scottish lighthouse goes dark. A visiting supply ship finds the building in order. But the keepers have vanished without trace. Three singers in multiple roles explore the psychological state of the fractious men, relive an official investigation and project a supernatural explanation. The composer, who based the structure of the opera on the Tower of the Tarot, leaves no simple answers. Based on an actual event in December 1900.
A pre-show talk will take place in Mermaid's gallery at 19:30 for a very limited number of ticket holders (15 max). Please contact box office directly on 01-2724030 to book.
