A tale from the Book of Tobit, this simple yet witty and uplifting opera follows the character of Tobias as he progresses on a journey towards spiritual education - learning to listen to the world and preparing to cast out an evil demon.

When various members of the production are missing left, right and centre, the line between performance and reality gets increasingly blurred. Exactly who is playing the demon?
