About

POSSESSION! splices between two different periods in time, as two extraordinary tales of love, romance, passion and despair simultaneously unfold. Following the poet, Robert Browning’s courtship letters in 1845 – and letters from South African feminist Olive Schreiner seventy years later – each portion of the tale weaves together the full story.

 

Future Opera is a not-­‐for-­‐profit organisation.
