A new opera, semi-based on Shakespeare and Purcell. Conceived by Katie Mitchell, Raphael Pichon & Cordelia Lynn.
In a small town in England, a family gathered at Miranda's funeral. For her children and her husband, the plot of time has torn. And yet past and present are confounded when they evoke the woman she was. A wave of emotions and memories overwhelm their daily lives.
Anchored in today's British realities, Miranda updates Purcell's work, especially the pages of a timeless sensibility inspired by her performance, or the test of death - a common experience par excellence.

In the afterlife, a woman delves into the cracks of her mind to revisit memories of past lives.
