2018 OPERA
"The Garden of Forking Paths" (2015-16)
2 character (soprano | baritone), 1 act chamber opera, in 5 scenes, interweaving the narrative of the Jorge Luis Borges short story with various other texts. The story portrays the crisis of a double-agent fugitive, who in his flight is caught in the trap of his family heritage and of a scientific theory of multi-verses, which begins to imply itself on reality, until he is trapped in a labyrinth of reality; trapped in ’The Garden of Forking Paths’.
The surrealist literary influence of Tristan Tzara, viz. his poem Volta, provides the atmospheric and semantic structures: libretto morphs between French and English, whilst Virginia Woolf’s text from The Waves provides material of deeper introspection.
