THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 20TH APRIL 2013
English National Opera and the Barbican are coming together to collaborate for Sunken Garden: a unique multi-platform world premiere. Telling the story of a missing person, and those who are searching for him, this film-opera explores what connects the disappearance of a software engineer with a neurotic film-maker and a gullible patroness of the arts. It delves into hoax and dark truth, virtual and the real. Best-selling author David Mitchell will be providing a libretto and Michel van der Aa, the Dutch composer, film and stage director, will make an ENO debut with one of opera's first uses of 3D film. Using his internationally acclaimed technique, Van der Aa will mix live and recorded images and sounds to create this multimedia occult mystery.
