Description "Bringing the brillance of the Athenian Court and barbarity of Thrace into the contemporary world, this powerful new opera from Richard Mills - the acclaimed Australia composer of Batavia - makes its world premiere across three states. A reworking of the Greek myth of Philomele in Sophocle's lost play Tereus, this shattering story of betrayal and violation is an explosive mix of ethics, politics and feminism, which takes an uncompromising look at the power of words and the human cost of violence."
