Clockwork or All Wound Up has been adapted into an Opera by Composer David Trouton and Visible Fiction’s director Douglas Irvine. Both are fans of the classic Pullman fairytale-esque book, which is a spooky story about an apprentice clockwork-maker, a storyteller and a mechanical knight constructed by an evil genius.
The Opera, which premiered on Wednesday the 13th of April, ran at the Tron theatre in Glasgow until the 16th of April, and will now be touring around Scotland until June. For information about locations and buying tickets, look here. The opera is suitable for ages eight and up, and is approximately 110 minutes long.
“Douglas Irvine’s adaptation is brisk and beautiful…” – The Scotsman.
