World premiere commission
Incorporating RICHARD WAGNER'S Tristan und Isolde
Written and Directed by JENNIFER HOYT TIDWELL
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.
