Will Gregory’s Piccard in Space
Queen Elizabeth Hall
Ruth performs on moog in Will Gregory’s debut opera. A classic adventure about the brilliant physicist Auguste Piccard. On a mission to prove Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, he takes to the skies with his assistant in an airtight capsule. Travelling to a record-breaking 51,000 feet, they survive being roasted by the sun, toxic balls of mercury and crashing into the Alps.
