'Midwinter. Invincible. Immaculate.'
The Count and the Countess go riding through a field of snow, where they find a young girl - the perfect girl, the girl of the Count's dreams and desires. As the three ride on together and their story turns to tragedy, three narrators watch and wait.
Owain Park's operatic adaptation of Angela Carter's dark and intense fairy tale is a brilliant and haunting new chamber work from a brilliant young composer - receiving strong reviews for its choral writing, its poeticism, and its evocation of an icy and barren landscape.
This new opera promises to make and exciting and powerful impact at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
