'Rejoice because there’s nothing left on a morrow-less day.'
Blake, a musician, has recently escaped rehab to return home. But he is haunted by objects, visitors and memories distracting him from his true purpose – self-destruction. Adapted from Gus Van Sant’s 2005 film based on the final days of Kurt Cobain, this new opera plunges into the torment that created a modern myth. Music by ROH/Guildhall School Composer-in-Residence Oliver Leith, libretto by Matt Copson, directed by Matt Copson and Anna Morrissey.
