With great wit and irony, The Hive investigates how the modern world goes about creating and exploiting the myth of the artist, in this instance World War 1 British poet Rupert Brooke.

Shifting between satire and seriousness, Brooke wanders through the opera as a hapless ghost commentating on the outrageous claims made upon his reputation, and the terrible manipulations of his work and his estate. Acerbic to the end, Brooke’s incisive wit and wisdom rivals the very best of Oscar Wilde.
