In video: Peer inside a desk and discover an opera

“Imagine you open your desk one day and a whole new world opens in front of you…”
Claudia Molitor

On Monday 9 & Tuesday 10 December, composer Claudia Molitor will be presenting Remember Me: A Desk Opera. An immersive and intimate event, Remember Me is a contemporary opera experience complete with film, orchestra pit visit, and live composition. Inspired by a Victorian desk inherited from her grandmother, Claudia presents the story of an imagined friendship between two renowned figures in Greek mythology and opera, Dido and Eurydice.

You can also listen to an excerpt from this miniature opera on Claudia’s website. And if you want to hear more, Claudia introduces this opera of tiny proportions in our Winter Festival trailer.
