Now the opera can be seen as a whole, with the release of 10 videos created by the talented film artists Søren Rye and Jonas Bang, in collaboration with illustrator Fie Lindholm. The videos features the lyrics for the opera written by the critically-acclaimed Danish writer Ursula Andkjær Olsen.
The videos have been shot in the same nuclear basement (below the former Copenhagen Municipal Hospital) where the opera was performed during 16 sold out nights in 2015. The opera was commissioned by Copenhagen Opera Festival, who produced it in collaboration with the local theatre Sort/Hvid. The scenography was put together by Marie Rosendahl Chemnitz, and it was staged by Christian Lollike. The result was 16 horrifying, fascinating and mysterious evenings, received by an enthusiastic audience and with great reviews to follow. The setup in the basement can never be remade, but the opera was granted new life with the release in early November, and now with the release of the complete video version of the album.
