Nemo — Jenseits von Vulkania
Composer: Nancy Van de Vate
Librettist: Allan Cortes
Premiere Date: Not available.
Description: Commander Nemo, son of Captain Nemo, the hero of Jules Verne's "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", has continued his father's life's work with the submarine Nautilus. Twenty years before the start of the opera, the usurper Dannoso had seized the country of Meeresland in the South Seas. Now wanting an heir to secure his succession, Dannoso decides to abduct and marry the beautiful young Elena, daughter of the man he overthrew, who lives peacefully with her mother on the fishermen's island of Katherina. During a recent visit to this island, Nemo had seen and fallen in love with Elena, a love warmly reciprocated. However, his duty to continue his father's work precluded any future for the relationship. Hearing of Dannoso's abduction of Elena, Nemo must decide between his loyalty to his father's work with the Nautilus in a world only of men, or rescuing Elena. He chooses the latter course, goes to Meeresland, defeats Dannoso, frees Meeresland from tyranny, and rescues Elena. The opera comes to a happy close.
