The Cockpit

 

Music & Words: Elfyn Jones

 

‘The magic in The Trilobite emerges in the mixing of the musicians, the singers and the sound effects… this is music of a different kind’ – thespyinthestalls.com

 

Mr Williams has fallen off a cliff. Will the hapless geography teacher survive? Will he get to tell the world about his theory? Will anybody believe him? Will he be forgiven for stealing that trilobite? Will he ever regain the love of his life?

 

A journey to Exmoor. A love triangle. A near-death experience. A lecture in geology. An opera. All played out in mid-air.

 

The Trilobite, Or The Fall of Mr Williams returns to Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival following its première in September 2020 under Covid conditions – this time all the singers will perform live!

 

The Trilobite, Or The Fall of Mr Williams is the third opera in the Sonopera triptych (Vicky and Albert | Her Face was of Flowers). Live show with video projection.
