Opera-musical in two acts, in Hungarian, with Hungarian and English surtitles

World premiere of the staged version

Contemporary composer Levente Gyöngyösi may already be familiar to the audience from his work in opera: in 2005 the Opera premiered his first work in the genre, The Stork Caliph. As a source for his most recent work, the composer has taken one of the most important novels of 20th century literature, which he composed into a vocal-symphonic musical for soloists and chorus and employing instruments used in popular music. "In principal, this genre works when it entertains. But I have also chosen a weighty literary subject. On the popular side, I am 'making the piece work', while at the same time putting all of my skill and craftsmanship into the symphonic and electronic arrangement.
