Immerse yourself into The Blind, an a cappella opera by Lera Auerbach and directed by John La Bouchardiere. A new dimension of opera that tells the story of twelve nameless characters stranded on a desert island waiting for a rescue that never arrives. The libretto is loosely based on the play Les aveugles, by Maurice Maeterlinck. Please note: Audience members will be blindfolded for the duration of the performance.
