Mr Williams has fallen off a cliff. Will the hapless geography teacher survive? Will he get to tell the world about his theory? Will anybody believe him? Will he be forgiven for stealing that trilobite? Will he ever regain the love of his life?

A journey to Exmoor. A love triangle. A near-death experience. A lecture in geology. An opera. All played out in mid-air.

This is the third opera in the Sonopera triptych (Vicky and Albert | Her Face was of Flowers). Live show with video projection.
