Part of Opera Philadelphia's Festival O19
Discount applies to all evening performances
September 18-23 | The Suzanne Roberts Theatre
This visceral production from composer
Ted Huffman - the duo behind the award-winning opera
4.48 Psychosis - uses verbatim text to examine the vast public response to the events surrounding the tragedy of Russian runaways Denis Muravyov and Katya Vlasova, exploring how stories are shaped and shared in our age of trolls, conspiracy theories, fake news, and 24/7 digital connection.
They could have been your teenage children, best friends, or classmates. Two beautiful 15-year-olds who lived every moment - including their last - online. What led to their violent deaths? Why did they choose to broadcast their final moments on social media? And what does it say about the voyeuristic society who watched, liked, and objectified them, transforming two kids into clickbait?
