When Justie sends a misguided tweet she employs her colleague Talon to try and fix the mounting backlash on social media. Meanwhile his wife Finna, a famous lifestyle vlogger, begins an online lesbian affair with recluse Freyja. #echochamber explores how we 'make mistakes' online inspired by Jon Ronson's book 'So You've Been Publicly Shamed'. This Anglo-Icelandic opera invites audiences to tweet their 'deepest, darkest secrets' onto a live twitter feed as we contemplate: "where do we live nowadays? On or offline?" 


Local composer and conductor, Michael Betteridge, brings his latest music-theatre offering to Manchester fresh from its successful run in Reykjavik, Iceland where it gained the attention of the national press. Combining opera, theatre and live projections, this interactive work redefines what opera is in the digital age of the 21st century.
