Based on Chekhov’s Three Sisters, Peter Eötvös’s acclaimed opera made its Vienna State Opera debut in Sharon's production, under the musical direction of the composer. In an abandoned room, characters and environments are delivered via three constantly running conveyor belts. The non-stop movement created a floating world of dreams, recollections, and endlessly repeating images and actions.
