Malkovich plays a recently deposed dictator. Legendary organist Martin Haselböck, in the character of a clergyman, performs works of his own along with organ music by Johann Sebastian Bach, César Franck, Charles-Marie Widor, Olivier Messiaen and György Ligeti. Before Turku, the production will have been staged at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, at the Konzerthaus in Vienna and at the Barbican in London.
