The old house for sale on the outskirts of the city is strangely cheap, but then again, the previous owners have all gone mad, and there are dark rumours about something that lives in the well. One day a stranger arrives who wants to buy it; he says he’s not afraid of ghosts, and even seems oddly determined to meet the spirit that claims the house as her own…
Calgary Opera teams up with Calgary’s renowned masters of the art of puppetry for adults, The Old Trout Puppet Workshop, and the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity to present a brand new opera inspired by an Ancient Greek ghost story. With a libretto by Giller Prize-winning author André Alexis, and music by celebrated composer Veronika Krausas – this is a fantastically spooky dramma giocoso about flying dogs, real estate, and crossing the River Styx.
