The staging of the Danish composer Thomas Agerfeldt Olesen's opera The Picture of Dorian Gray (2013) is one of Den Jyske Opera's (Danish National Opera) bravest ventures in recent years. A choreographed opera with no singers on stage - based on Oscar Wilde's most controversial novel. Like Wilde's novel, Agerfeldt Olesen's opera balances between reality and dream or imagination. Consequently, both sounds from the world of yesterday and outbreaks of the musical genre are present in Agerfeldt Olesen's score, though primarily expressing the composer's own distinctive sound. The prizewinning Swedish choreographer Marie Brolin-Tani has conceived the choreography seen on the opera stage as a strong sensual interpretation of the actions and conflicts of the drama.
