L'enfant des glaces
Composer:Zack Settel
Librettist:Quevedo & Nerval
Synopsis
After being buried in the freezing cold of the Andes for five centuries, the Ice Child reappears to haunt us…he becomes a ghost for mankind, the voices of women, haunting them into madness. Taking nothing from the lessons of history, time, which can crawl slowly or whirl out of control, greatly affects the lives of the characters as it flows past, carrying them into a frantic race, at once desperate and passionate.

Dizzy from the excitement of the moment, swept into the whirlwind of the future, will they hear the story of the Ice Child, will they be nourished by his song, will they be able to hold back time as it drifts by?...Life fights on and clings to existence, unbelievably and without remorse.
