Description

In this acclaimed story by Sofi Oksanen war and oppression drive people to extreme acts. Zara becomes a victim of sex trafficking, while Aliide has experienced a ruthless era in a nightmarish regime. The choir occupies a big role and transforms from wedding guests and forest brothers to Soviet soldiers. Reinvere's music contrasts the sensitive and subtle with brutality; after this highly successful opera, he received a commission from the Norwegian National Opera.
