The Devil Inside is a gritty, glittery, Faustian folktale, set firmly in the twenty-first century. Inspired by The Bottle Imp, a short story by Robert Louis Stevenson, this brand-new opera echoes his most famous tale The Strange Case Of Doctor Jekyll And Mr Hyde.
Two friends stumble upon a bottle that will change their lives, a bottle that can grant any wish. But there’s a catch and the bottle demands a payment…. Will the pair find their happy-ever-after or will the bottle be their undoing?
The work has been hailed widely as one of the best new chamber operas in decades, garnering glowing reviews in the national press.
The performance is preceded by a free, pre-show discussion with Michael McCarthy (Music Theatre Wales’s Artistic Director) and Stuart MacRae at 6.30pm.
Approximately 1 hour 50 minutes including interval.
Sung in English, with English surtitles
