About:

"After a choral introduction to thirty saints, a series of tableaux featuring St Teresa II unfolds on the steps of a Cathedral. At a garden party near Barcelona there is a dance, a game and a heavenly vision through a telescope. In a monastery garden, saints discuss monastic life and see a vision. In heaven, the saints remember their earthly life. 

Composed by Virgil Thomson and with zany joyous poetry by celebrated writer Gertrude Stein,Four Saints in Three Acts makes for charmingly irrational theatre. Inspired by jazz, gospel and folk music this surreal work about 16th century Spanish saints directed by Nancy Black will feature youth opera performers, a youth orchestra conducted by Phoebe Briggs (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street) and 3D scenic imagery (The Flying Dutchman) devised by Deakin Motion.Lab under the direction of Dr Kim Vincs."
