A desperate inventor. A dead man walking. A family disgraced. A city in ruin. Join us in telling the tale of Annabel McAlistair, a mad scientist hell-bent on bringing the love of her life back from the dead by binding his soul into the body of a life-sized clockwork doll. This Steampunk opera by Paul Shapera explores how the people of New Albion adjust to the dead walking among them, and how one woman’s actions affect the city of New Albion for generations to come.
