In September 2018 we give the Vancouver premiere of the legendary Nigredo Hotel, a bizarre, macabre and astonishing operatic thriller -- starring Tyler Duncan and Sarah Vardy.

It is the story of an encounter between a beautiful but crazed woman who runs a shoddy hotel, and a brain surgeon who takes refuge there after he crashes his car. You can't imagine what happens next.

Raymond and Sophie are two of the most unusual characters in 20th C opera: brilliant, dazed, lonely, each possessing great insight into the other but little into themselves, sarcastic and corrosive, funny and combative, dazzling and daring, lunatic and often lovely. These are two remarkable roles, telling three remarkable stories: hers, his, and theirs.

Music by Nic Gotham, libretto by Ann-Marie MacDonald. Directed by Alan Corbishley, with sets and lighting by John Webber, and costumes by Barbara Clayden. Tickets ($60.25, $45.25, and $22.25) go on sale at The Cultch only at the end of June 2018.
