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.

 

This is the third opera in the Sonopera triptych (Vicky and Albert | Her Face was of Flowers). Live show with video projection.

 

The initial broadcast included meeting the opera maker and cast of The Trilobite, Or The Fall Of Mr Williams, and finding out how we put this innovative show together, using pre-recorded video sequences and green screen techniques to complete a live presentation featuring integrated music and sound design. Learn about our plans for the future, including the Sonopera Triptych! Talk and Q&A session.
