Master Peter’s Puppet/Show What Next

This event has finished

Two celebrated 20th century operas exploring notions of identity in the modern age of chaos

Based on the much-loved puppet-show episode in Don Quixote, Master Peter’s Puppet Show blurs the line between reality and fiction. Victorian Opera, in collaboration with pupeteers Black Hole Theatre push the concept of a show within a show one step further.

What Next? is the only opera written by two-time Pulitzer Prize winning composer Elliott Carter. The opera crackles with life and energy as it examines the lives of six people who regain consciousness after an accident.
