Scottish Opera Presented in association with The Royal Opera.


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.

 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. They are joined by a superb ensemble cast including former Scottish Opera Emerging Artist Jennifer France, fast making a name for herself as a contemporary music specialist, Scottish soprano Jeni Bern and Stephen Gadd. Scottish Opera’s Director of Music, Stuart Stratford conducts.
