A chamber opera in three acts
hikikomori! is Zygmund de Somogyi's first opera, commissioned by Nigel and Sue Masters of Opera in Oborne.
hikikomori! explores self-isolation, grief, healing, and returning to new and possibly more fearful society. The libretto - written by the composer and inspired by indie psychological-horror video game OMORI - depicts the mind of a young shut-in boy, navigating a dream world alongside manifestations of his childhood friends to uncover a hidden, tragic truth.
hikikomori! premieres on 4 April 2022, 15:30 at St. Cuthbert's Church in Oborne, Dorset (see poster) - more details can be found below.
The premiere will be preceded by a talk by the composer, facilitated by artistic director Susanna Stranders.
Tickets are £10 - contact Opera in Oborne at 01935 817194 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place. Limited capacity.
