Summary The world premiere of a new work commissioned by The Royal Opera brings to the stage a famous character of Greek myth. Part man, part beast, the Minotaur is trapped in a labyrinth and constrained by his violent role there, yet he longs to discover his own identity and his own voice. Among the innocents of a blood sacrifice Athens must pay to Crete is Theseus, who has come to challenge the violent Minotaur, but also attacts the attention of Ariadne - and it is her help that ensures his success in the labyrinth
