Borealis Recommends – August
It’s very exciting for us at the festival when projects that start out here in Bergen go on to exciting new things. It’s All True, an opera in suspension from Object Collection, which premiered at Borealis 2016 will soon be performed in London at Cafe Oto, and is also being released by the excellent SLIP discs. Relive the noisy, chaotic premiere, or hear it for the first time here.
