A decayed tooth is found in a bowl of soup. It belongs to a kitchen boy, a long way from home and with no papers. He’s looking for his sister, but she’s been forced into a very different kind of service just next door….

Set in a Chinese restaurant, this East-meets-West opera is a compelling fable of modern life. Funny and shocking in equal measure, this brilliant new opera poignantly captures the horrors of too many lost lives.

‘Exemplary in its clarity and simplicity... I began being baffled and amused, but I ended up haunted and moved.’
