Premiere Date: Not available.
Producing Company: Center for Contemporary Opera
Description: This dark, psychological drama invokes both the rise of fascism in 1930’s Germany and the tyranny of love, with a Mephistopheles-type character and the power of suggestion. The characters are led down a path of self-examination through fantasy, but are finally forced back into reality through the ugliness of events.
