Panic Opera is an entertaining journey that through a sequence of short scenes will move the audience. The play is an irreverent, fun and frenetic melodrama sprinkled with social criticism. The story opens with a group of passengers waiting in the cabin of an aircraft who, like the audience, have no way knowing that they are about to embark on a trip filled with surprises, madness and paranoia.
Panic Opera gathers actors from different countries who share a deep interest in exploring other cultures, languages, religions and believes. Through the use of the absurd, constant plot shifts, and sharp irony, Panic Opera is able to deliver a deep, clever and powerful black comedy.
