Programme for an opera based on the novel ‘Neige’ (Snow) by Maxence Fermine.
Composed, adapted and directed by Catherine Kontz.
 
In 19th century Japan, Yuko, a young haiku poet, embarks on a journey through snow-covered mountains to learn the art of colour from a blind painter. Instead; the tragic story of a samurai and a French tightrope walker named Neige teaches him about the fragile balance of life. Ultimately Yuko’s quest takes him far beyond his poetry of “devastating whiteness” into the heart of a beautiful fable of love, loss and life.
