Description

A brand-new miniature opera exploring deforestation through scenes from five ancient stories that centre on what happens when you mess with trees. These stories alternate with conversations between two users of an internet forum on an overnight work binge, until gradually the two worlds begin to merge. A journey through humour, anger and ultimately hope, STUMPED is ideally suited to both existing opera fans and newbies. Performed by a stellar cast and ending with a short reflection from an invited forest expert. Part of MadeInScotlandShowcase.com
