Notes:
During a pandemic nothing is a walk in the park. For modern lovers Tamara and Natalie, a night out in the fresh air takes a turn for the uncanny when they meet an older couple very much like them. There’s only one problem: these other park-goers are dead. The Late Walk is romance, science fiction and horror set against the backdrop of a global pandemic and asks, in the fashion that only opera can, what can all the best intentions and most human passions do in the face of an omnipotent and callous virus?
