TÊTE À TÊTE PRESENTS

The Mediterranean meets the North Sea in an extraordinary operatic voyage around the story of Odysseus, told in a unique collaboration between one of the UK’s most forward-looking opera companies and the spinners and knitters of the Shetland Islands. With Tête à Tête’s virtuoso musicianship and theatricality and the Shetland craftspeople’s timeless art, this ageless story is brought into the 21st century as they re-spin the tale of Odysseus as damaged and confused warrior, returning from a futile and savage conflict between East and West, fought on spurious pretexts.
