What happens when secret desires are unleashed?

English composer Jonathan Dove’s opera tells the story of a group of disparate travelers who meet at an airport with shared departure plans but hidden personal desires. Their flights are canceled suddenly with the arrival of a violent electrical storm. Trapped in the airport overnight as the storm rages, facades are dropped and anxiety levels rise. The lives of these one-time strangers turbulently collide as they shed inhibitions to confront personal desires, hopes, fear and each other…all with unexpected consequences.

Director James Darrah (Agrippina, 2014, A Flowering Tree, 2015, and Semele, 2016) and conductor Christopher Rountree (A Flowering Tree) return to bring a new production of this revolutionary opera to the stage. Dove’s thrilling score and dramatist April de Angelis’ deliciously funny, poetic libretto make this contemporary opera a truly groundbreaking work of theatre.
