The Zolle Suite

A new short from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Du Yun brings three chapters of her 2005 opera Zolle to the digital screen.

A dead woman wanders through the shadowy space between memory and reality, tracing the lines of her identity through the land she once walked—an immigrant in death as in life.

By turns abstract, compelling, resigned, even harrowing, three sequential movements from Du Yun’s opera Zolle are brought to life by an international host of animation directors, creating their own unique visual interpretations of the composer’s striking musical world. Open your ears, let your mind roam free, and prepare to be blown away.
