A gruesome massacre takes place in Bohuslän at the dead of winter. The sole survivor, a young woman, is faced with the dilemma of whether to satisfy the dead victims’ call for revenge or to surrender to love. This operatic adaptation of Selma Lagerlöf’s classic novel is an unforgettable experience.
