In the centenary year of the end of World War 1, Fulham Opera present a melodic and intensely lyrical new opera of passion, power and high emotion, presenting a radical and challenging evocation of the moment Humanity takes charge of the world.
Live piano music, performed in English.
Star-crossed lovers, rebellion and revolution against the backdrop of a corrupt political class.
What would you sacrifice for lasting peace?
Keith Burstein's new opera is a ravishing vision of our society crossing beyond the threshold of war towards a new age of peace and mutual respect.
The activists within a peace movement find themselves playing out the eternal myth of Prometheus, who took the fire from the Gods to give it to the mortals.
But they too may pay a high price for their audacity …
Shot through with pathos and ironic humour, this dark parable is laced with the sounds of vaudeville, Broadway musical and pop ballads.
