The Flowering Desert is a planetarium opera, inspired by the experience of the astrophysicist Dr. Amaury Triaud in the discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 solar system.

We follow the thoughts of an astrophysicist who explores the border between fact and imagination. It is a surround sound immersive experience, with a tailor made music of the spheres, which puts the audience inside the mind of a scientist and the TRAPPIST-1 solar system. With live performers, stunning projections and celestial music this will be a beautiful night with the stars.
