'Tahiti!' Bloomsbury Opera - (Lighting Designer)

Goodenough College, 25th & 26th March 2017

A double bill in which Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti is prefaced by the world premiere of Pacific Pleasures, a new opera by Alannah Marie Halay on a libretto by Jorge Balça.


Set in a typical residential suburb, Tahiti! tells the story of a young couple who, despite apparently having all the key ingredients for happiness and having been afforded all the opportunities to hold on to it and be truly happy, alas... are not.


Using a range of dramatic strategies, such as physical theatre and puppeteering, Tahiti! explores the extent to which our lives are already mapped out even before we start living them.


It questions the degree of agency we believe we have, and highlights our seemingly chronic resistance to making changes, even when current events force us to face the undisputable failure of our plans.


Will returned to work with the wonderful Jorge Balça and Bloomsbury Opera after last year's massively successful production of The Bear.
