a phantasmagorical opera
a dream of Verlaine
LOD muziektheater is a Ghent production company for opera and musical theatre, a creative base for performing artists.
Children of Nowhere (Ghost Road 2) is a continuation of the idea behind Ghost Road. It is once again a fusion of theatre, music, travel reports and film.
"In his characteristic style, Murgia combines video, music and theatre into one coherent whole. The music was again written by LODcomposer Dominique Pauwels, this time performed by a cello quartet (Aton'&Armide) and a soprano (Lore Binon). ... The earnest voice of Viviane De Muynck brings a profound humanity to this story of political phantoms." - La Libre Belgique
“Could this be the moment when opera finally becomes revolutionary?” – The Times Literary Supplement
A concert, a film and a play all in one: Enough Already is meant to be all of these, and nothing less.
