Event Details

"My head is gonna burst! I'm trapped, I'm cursed! I feel like I can't breathe. All I can do is grieve"

From the opening lines of Midnight Son, Ray Clark’s predicament is clear. His world has spiralled out of control. His wife Marisa is dead and his lover Clara has been jailed for her murder. As the clock is wound back on these three devastated lives, the blinding nature of obsession is revealed in this modern-day operatic tragedy.

Midnight Son continues Victorian Opera’s tradition of new Australian work at the Malthouse Theatre. Midnight Son was commissioned with the financial assistance of the Music Board of the Australia Council and The Ian Potter Cultural Trust.
