Pincher Martin opera

Pincher Martin was adapted into a stunning opera by Oliver Rudland in 2014. Staged at the Royal College of Music, London, the opera combined music with unexpected sounds, like the ringing of a bicycle bell, and the cry of a seagull to depict Pincher’s suffering. The staging was imaginative with a huge cinema screen displaying the crashing of waves as Pincher sank deeper and deeper into his own hell.
