Opera ID 11

A Lithuanian girl Irka, meets George, a young man from the United Kingdom over “Skype”. Their digital language evloved from smily faces to elaborate songs and as soon as they start to understand each other better paranoja and jealousy takes over.  Irka falls in love with George and dives into her own fantasy world, where she struggles to distinguish between dreams, fantasies and reality, between the real life and the virtual one.

This performance/experimental opera was comissioned by NOA, New Opera Action Festival in Vilnius, Lithuania and was created through a number of workshops among international collaborators from Lithuania, Belgium, Chech Republic, Norway and and USA.
