The intricate stories of Prior, Louis, Belize, Harper, Joe, Roy Cohn and the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg, all battle for life and understanding their existence in the opera by the celebrated composer Peter Eötvös, based on the renowned two-part play by Tony Kushner.
Eötvös boils the seven-hour original piece down to a portrait of a self-compacting world, in which the will to live and the depth of human hope triumphs.
