"Written On Skin" tells the story of a young artist commissioned to create an illuminated book to celebrate his Protector's power. But the book ends up sparking a rebellion in the Protector's submissive wife, when she compels the artist to depict their secret relationship in his pictures.

The Protector realises what they are showing him, moving the opera to its powerful and tragic conclusion.
