The second part of the trilogy is the story of the 45-year-old child psychiatrist, Gyula Gát, taking the form of a chamber opera. Dr. Gát specializes in cases of domestic violence and child sexual abuse.

 


 

One day a new patient arrives at the clinic. Ádám is charged with seven accounts of sexual assault on children and murder. The doctor’s medical expertise is soon wavered by their discussion which is gradually dominated by the patient. A surreal process begins in which the doctor has to account for his professional failures and the break-up of his family – to himself.

Answering an invitation from the Bavarian State Opera to perform at its summer festival, the opera premiered in July 2011 in Pavilion 21 MINI Opera Space. Later on it was presented in Hungary in Trafó.
