In the world premiere Only the sound remains famous director Peter Sellars combines two short operas inspired by Nôh dramas into a heavenly, full-length performance.

In Always Strong, a young lute player returns to the court following his death under violent circumstances. When alive, his playing was erotic and heavenly. But he cannot find happiness again. Only his spirit touches the lute and then disappears slowly. ‘Only the sound remains…’
