20:30 Freya Wolf - "Bitter”, a chamber opera 
Someone gets lost in his thoughts and finds himself trapped in a dark place. A process that is never openly spoken about is brought on stage as the dialogue in Someone’s head is played out and takes on form. But what are they even talking about? The dialogue fails. Suddenly, there’s loneliness. What to do now? And how do you get rid of these underlying bitter undertones?
