In development. Premiers in 2017.
A stranger arrives on a foreign shore in search of a soul, two lovers escape a sinking city, as a cursed composer scales the submarine depths to retrieve the lost ending of his concerto.
To be staged with four actors and seven musicians. Scored for piano, harp, banjo, bass clarinet, cello, metal bowls, water containers, glock, dulcimer and hurdy-gurdy.
