What would happen if humans lived as long as trees? Composer Matt Rogers’ new chamber opera is set in an improbable future where extraordinary lifespans have changed human beliefs and behaviour. The piece tells its complex story while reflecting on our often-disastrous relationship with narrative itself.
She Described It to Death will be premiered at the Linbury Theatre as the third Doctoral Composer-in-Residence collaboration between The Royal Opera and Guildhall School of Music & Drama.
Tickets: available in April from the Royal Opera House
