Besse is an opera triptych described by its creators as a story which fights the patriarchy with fermentation. This Halloween Besse takes an audience on a musical journey through the rich and forgotten history of beer and witchcraft from the comfort of a seat in Dig Brew . The production centres around the character Besse who is living through the Black Death & battling the changing trade of brewing from domestic to commercial, alongside the growing fear of witchcraft. The characters are based on the ingredients of beer, the fate of each mirroring the reactions and outcomes that lead to beer.
