Synopsis


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.
