Gian Carlo Menotti’s 1950 work The Consul – about the desperate wait for a visa – could not be more topical. Menotti's urgent appeal for more compassion and humanity is the opera for our times.

This semi-staged suspense-filled piece takes place in an anonymous European totalitarian state and is packed with emotion and surprises.
