Contemporary English opera Sunken Garden will make its stateside debut on March 9 at the Dallas Opera[1]. Spearheaded by the house’s recently departed CEO Keith Cerny, the production will blend live performance and dazzling 3-D cinematic elements. “[It will] stretch boundaries like no one else,” Cerny says. Created by Dutch composer Michel van der Aa, and based on Cloud Atlas novelist David Mitchell’s libretto, the critically acclaimed show follows a young filmmaker protagonist on an Oz-like journey set against realistic computer-generated images of greenery and insects.
