Composer Philip Venables and director Ted Huffman−the duo behind the award-winning 4:48 Psychosis–team up once again on this powerful, ripped-from-the-headlines world premiere about the deaths of two 15-year-old runaways. While in the midst of a standoff with Russian Special Forces, the couple broadcast themselves live on social media, creating a spectacle of real-time voyeurism, and have since become the Romeo and Juliet of internet clickbait. This multimedia production uses verbatim text to examine the vast public response to these events, what that reveals about our society, and what it means to make an opera out of it.

Lasts 1 hour and 36 minutes with no intermission.

Performed in English and Russian with English supertitles.
