Conductor: Miroslav Tóth
The Mystery of the Stick presents an attempt at a reconstruction of the life of people on the planet Pluto. Billions of kilometres from the Earth, humankind has built a base serving as a changing station en route to another galaxy. The final instalment of Miroslav Tóth’s opera trilogy has taken the form of a new variation on an institutional paraphrase, replete with mysterious phenomena. In 13 tableaux, it reveals the unfeasibility of opera on another plant.
