Oh Pilot
Composer:Nic Gotham
Librettist:Banuta Rubess
Synopsis
The airport is the scene of a modern Pilgrim's progress. For travelers in Arrivals, the airport is a center of expectation; for those in Departures, it is a site of grief or relief. While four separate stories are played out, the intercom paging system provides a kind of vocal ^deus ex machina`. Things unseen circle above.
