After successful runs from the English National Opera and the Opera De Lyon, this mind melting opera from visionary Michel van de Aa finally makes landfall in the US courtesy of the Dallas Opera. Blending elements of film, videography, live performance, and fantastical visual effects, Sunken Garden is a boundary pushing masterpiece set to a score that fuses classical, pop, electronic and acoustic music to dizzying effect. Novelist David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas) delivers a compelling libretto that draws upon his beautiful Sci-Fi background.
