Composed by The Police's Stewart Copeland, The Invention of Morel
is a futuristic love story that transcends time and space. Hailed as "a brilliant piece of musical surrealism" by the Chicago Tribune
and inspired by the '40s novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares, the opera follows an escaped fugitive on a strange island. When he falls in love with a beautiful woman (inspired by silent screen siren Louise Brooks, per Bioy Casares), he unravels the mysteries behind the island and the mad genius who resides there. Joined by the Long Beach Opera, this sweeping sci-fi tale of human connection and the power of love makes its co-world premiere at the Beverly O'Neill Theater in Long Beach. The Invention of Morel
is a co-commission by Long Beach Opera and Chicago Opera Theater.
