In what Vivier described as a “ritual opera of death”, the central character—a young woman named Agni—descends into a dreamworld where mystical beings borrowed from stories, gravitate around her: Lewis Carroll, Merlin, a witch, the Queen of the Night, a blind prophet, an old monk, Tristan and Isolde, Mozart, the Master of the Waters, Copernicus, and his mother. These characters could be Agni’s dreams that follow her during her initiation, and finally into her dematerialization.
