Opera at its most extreme. Concentrated into just 100 intense minutes, there is no let-up in its power and intoxication.

From the seductive ‘Dance of the Seven Veils’ to the explosive vocal parts, the violent sensuality of the score illustrates every moment of the story with unflinching vividness, illuminating the darkest corners of a world that has lost all moral compass.
