In a forgotten room, deep in the basement of The Arches, we stumble upon a scene already in progress, intensely private, seemingly mundane, yet utterly captivating. It is a scene that will continue long after the audience leaves. In this brand new fifteen minute opera, two voices attempt to untangle themselves from each other and traverse the tumultuous terrain between union and separation. An opera inspired by quiet moments. This is how life sounds when you really listen.

Directed by Stasi Schaeffer, One Day This Will Be Long Ago is the latest creation by emergent Glasgow-based opera company, Opera Breve.
