Nav­i­gate the Blood – Noise Opera with Ad­mi­ral Fal­low is at Oban Dis­tillery tonight (Thurs­day November 8) at 7.30pm.

Noise (New Opera in Scot­land Events) presents a new opera, Nav­i­gate the Blood, by indie folk-rock band Ad­mi­ral Fal­low and Gareth Wil­liams. The opera is set in the world of whisky and gin man­u­fac­tur­ing and will be tour­ing dis­til­leries through­out Scot­land un­til November 24.

Nav­i­gate the Blood fol­lows the story of Bob and Lena, a hus­band and wife run­ning a small in­de­pen­dent dis­tillery in ru­ral Scot­land. Their son Liam dis­ap­peared in mys­te­ri­ous cir­cum­stances three years ago.

Liv­ing and work­ing with them is a young Pol­ish woman named Agata. She wants to mod­ernise the dis­tillery by mak­ing gin as well as whisky. Into this sit­u­a­tion comes Eli­jah, a young man with a strange, other-worldly pres­ence. Eli­jah looks and moves very like the lost boy …
