KEEPERS OF THE NIGHT FAMILY OPERA

KEEPERS OF THE NIGHT FAMILY OPERA

“Keepers of the Night”, an original family opera that had its world premiere in Los Angeles in 2007, follows the adventures of four children who camp out on the edge of a forest on Midsummer’s Night. As darkness falls they come under the magical spell of the moon Selene, who seeks revenge on her former lover Ozalid the owl. Ozalid presides over the forest creatures’ annual song contest in which the clash between democracy and aristocracy, nature and city, group and individual all interplay. As this story of mistaken identity and vocal showmanship unfolds, the notions of ‘winning’ and ‘losing’ are held up to gentle comic scrutiny.
