Opera in two acts, inspired by the eponymous text by Evgueni Zamiatine.
Because they can not have children, two spouses end up adopting an orphan. The teenager has an unexpected place in their homes and in their hearts.
In this suburb of St. Petersburg, the word between the couple has become rarefied and silences become heavy. The world the woman has built to overcome the sadness of her emotional life will be disrupted while at the end of winter the waters of the river rise.

More information is available on the official website of the opera house.
