THE LISTENERS is Now Playing at Den Norske Opera

People around the world hear a low-pitched and unexplainable sound. When they band together, they are dismissed as crazy. Missy Mazzoli and Royce Vavrek's brand new opera is a thriller about social rejection, the abuse of power and echo chambers. Based on an original story by Jordan Tannahill and inspired by an actual phenomenon.

This highly pertinent opera is about searching for a sense of belonging, about understanding the incomprehensible - and about how charismatic leaders can easily exploit our constant longing for connection.

She’s part of the colourful, queer theatrical culture, while he’s from an upper-class family with old money and new clothes.   Sylva and Edwin hit it off all the same. Much to the dismay of his parents. Besides, Stasi is the one he should be marrying. But Sylva is undeterred by prejudice, class difference or ingrained attitudes.

The Barber of Seville is one of three plays by Pierre Beaumarchais, and a precursor to The Marriage of Figaro . There, Count Almaviva got his Rosina, but no happy marriage. In light of this, Rossini's comic opera about Rosina and Count Almaviva's young love takes on a different tone.
