Commissioned by Guerilla Opera in 2017, this operatic parody mocks haughty public figures and parodies the high-blown style of revenge tragedies. It attacks the amorality and depravity of the rich, privileged, and politically powerful. The wild and raucous story is told by a strange band players in clown makeup, and concludes with a “beautiful and stirring setting of Matthew Arnold’s ‘Dover Beach,’” (WBUR) which tells of the protagonist’s loss of faith in humanity and we hear screams and cries of freighted people running from Nazi soldiers. It is sung in English and 90 minutes in duration.
