A new opera about the life and death of composer Claude Vivier.

Starting with his murder, we continue by climbing into the mind of Vivier, spinning around  through his works, his youth, his desires and coming back again and again at the point of his death. Was it a part of his work? Was it inspired by it? Or was it a poetic coincidence that he had described his own death in his final words of his latest, unfinished work?
