Adapted from The Revenger's Tragedy, a fine cast of 9 singers brings this new, tragicomic opera to life.

"If a revenger's wish might stand in force,
Would all those there were turned into a corpse!"

We’re in a dystopian underworld of criminality, lust and murder. Vindicio is a young man played by a woman who, for much of the play, disguises himself - as a woman. And that’s just the start.

He carries with him the death mask of his girlfriend whom the King murdered; he seeks revenge but is intercepted by the King’s son, the Prince, who wants to bed Vindicio’s sister.

So begins this saga of political in-fighting, which is over 400 years old but suggests nothing has changed.
