In collaboration with Charlottesville's Jennifer Hoyt Tidwell (CLAW, NO WAKE) VHO pushes the boundaries of opera performance with a radical new genre: an opera within a play.
Set in a remote sanatorium in the near future, patients come to escape the dying world. Will anyone make it out alive? Inspired by Thomas Mann's novella Tristan, Drugsong tells a comitragic tale of love and therapy among the ruins.
