Show Information

In the Locked Room & Ghost Patrol

Two Short Operas in one evening…

In the Locked Room:

A closed door that sparks an obsession so strong the boundaries between reality and fantasy begin to blur.

Sung in English

Ghost Patrol:

A modern day bar where three people trying to escape their past collide uncovering a terrible secret and unleashing inevitable tragedy.

Sung in English

These two short operas explore the capacity of the mind to shape our lives, whether through the potency of imagination or the overwhelming power of memories.

Composers Huw Watkins and Stuart MacRae hail from a generation of 30-somethings who are rapidly establishing themselves amongst the leading composers in the UK. They both team up with former collaborators – Watkins with multi award-winning poet and librettist David Harsent (including The Minotaur for Harrison Birtwistle) and MacRae with acclaimed crime novelist Louise Welsh (The Cutting Room) – to bring these evocative tales to the stage.
