A participatory choral opera by Jonathan Dove
This contemporary re-reading of the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur offers young people an initiation into culture and thought by means of an artistic experience which encourages them to reflect on their social environment.
The Monster in the Maze (to give it its original title) is a joint creation in which hundreds of young singers from schools and colleges share the stage with professional musicians and actors. With the stress on participation, it offers a chance for everyone – members of the audience and the cast alike – to find out more about opera.
