About the event
Behold the story of Offred: one woman of millions stripped of her identity, agency and freedom by an oppressive and theocratic government. In the ultimate act of bravery, defiance and resistance, Offred risks her life to preserve her story and save others from her fate. Based on Margaret Atwood’s twist-filled dystopian novel, A Handmaid’s Tale becomes one of Glow’s most extraordinary productions with an evocative score of traditional opera influenced by minimalism, medieval chant, and gospel.
Composed by Poul Ruders. Libretto by Paul Bentley (based on the novel by Margaret Atwood)
