The Lost One is trapped in a nightmarish trance. She awakens in a decrepit basement to the greeting of the sinister Friend who begins to steer her into the chaos of addiction and religious fundamentalism. Surrounded by dreams and ghost stories she cannot control, her storytelling is her one defence.

A Time of Empty Tales is an adaptation of the literary classic ‘A Thousand and One Nights’ translated through opera.

Addressing themes of religious fundamentalism, feminism and the power of the storyteller, A Time of Empty Tales explores the strength of the female protagonist.

All ages (mostly adults)
