L'Archange
Composer:Louis Dufort
Librettist:Alexis Nouss
Synopsis
A judge decides to try the Archangel of Evil in absentia. He lays out the charges. The only witness willing and able to defend the Archangel is the artist, in the name of the works of art that evil has inspired. But can beauty acquit him? As the trial progresses and the witnesses are called to the bar, the judge loses control of the proceedings and is overcome by the growing confusion. The trial is suspended and the Archangel escapes judgment. The initial folly of the judge, which was coherent because it was idealistic, becomes incoherent madness as he is forced to confront evil.
