Centered on the edgy relationship between Kublai Khan, the volatile head of a vast empire, and explorer Marco
Polo, this spellbinding mix of theatre, choreography, music, architectural design and projection mapping imagines a succession of alternative worlds – and reimagines what is possible in live performance.
The privately funded FEDORA Prizes are dedicated to helping innovative opera and ballet projects
that are still in the making to reach the stage while involving emerging artists of different
nationalities and backgrounds.
