1958 is a psychological thriller. The story takes place in the United States, in Seattle. The plot is brought into motion by bewildering, fragmentary and rarefied states of consciousness which in turn express the confusion of the protagonist’s personal identity.
This one-act opera experience becomes modern, immersive, blurring the lines of genre: libretto, production design, and music culminate in a stimulating mixture of cinema, theater, and virtual reality flavors. It is accessible, yet intellectually sophisticated.
