Are you truly living?

See a musical version of a profound tale with themes of lost love and life’s meaning. At a Christmas party, Gretta swoons as a renowned tenor sings. Her husband Gabriel feels amorous—but is crushed to learn she was actually moved by the memory of her first love—who died hopelessly obsessed with her. Realizing his marriage lacks such passion Gabriel feels alone. Mortal. Lifeless. He detests his routine existence. And he feels like a shadow of a person, flickering in a world where the living and ‘the dead’ converge.
