Chamber Opera- based on the John Le Carré novel.

About this event

Set in Hamburg in the aftermath of 9/11, Stephen Davismoon’s Chamber Opera A Most Wanted Man tells the tale of an innocent young man on the run from international security services
wishing to prove his innocence, seek asylum and build a safe future, to heal others.

He seeks out an idealistic young lawyer to assist him in his search for the one man that can save him. It is a story of innocence in the face of overwhelming state power and where individual life destinies are altered forever.

The mysterious intrigue of the narrative, through a variety of digital technologies, will immerse the audience in ways seldom experienced before.

This work is realised with support from the Arts Council of England, BBC R&D and in partnership with Liverpool Hope University,

Middle Tennessee State University, Heritage Opera and IMMIX Ensemble.
