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.
The world premiere of 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.
Breathwork is a companion work to a larger composition Hold Your Breath by Éna Brennan and David Pountney which has been commissioned by Bregenzer Festspiele.
