Guerilla Opera Presents: Giver of Light
Time & Location
About the Event
Giver of Light is a “gloriously weird and sonically rich… “ (New Music Box), world premiere chamber opera with music and original libretto by Adams Roberts, electronic score by Anil Çamcı, and stage directing by Andrew Eggert.
Commissioned and performed by Guerilla Opera in 2013, this new work is “opera at its most transporting” (New Music Box) and brings an “otherworldly” (Boston Classical Review) take on the life of Rumi, based in modern times. The “freshly ambitious” (BOSTON GLOBE) interpretation of Rumi’s life follows John, a successful and socially conscious man who seems to have it all, but is deeply troubled by an unrelenting emptiness in his soul. Upon meeting a mystic--who is also his son’s school bus driver--his life is upended and he pursues a friendship that will forever change his life.
The opera is sung in English and 75 minutes in duration.
