Travels
Composer:Victoria Bond
Librettist:Ann Goethe
Synopsis
Travels tells the story of Gull, an adolescent on the verge of manhood. Suffocated by the confines of home, he begins a quest for identity, love, mystery. He is haunted and spurred forward by an elusive muse. Gull embarks on his travels by way of a train that spills him into a variety of cultures, where he encounters characters who mirror those he left behind: his mother, father, sweetheart and brother. Far from a literal interpretation , Travels retains Swift's satirical edge, taking a dark look at many aspects of contemporary culture from televangelists to Prozac.
