Private View - Borealis Festival Bergen

For her first opera, Private View, the composer Annelies Van Parys chose to take as her starting point Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller Rear Window, about a murder in a block of flats. 

Her collaboration with the librettist Jen Hadfield, scenarist Gaea Schoeters and director Tom Creed led to the creation of a pioneering opera that won several awards. Private View breaks with tradition, above all in the video installation by the Collective 33⅓, a visual trip based on found footage from old black & white films.
