"afterWARds" is an opera about the emotional battles that continue to rage after “war” is long over.
It's an opera about displaced refugees, and the lingering, post-traumatic effects of war.
But most of all, it's an opera about love, healing, and the resilience of the human spirit.
Using the words and music of Mozart's IDOMENEO – perhaps his rawest, most radical opera — in a reorganized and distilled 90-minute format, creator and director David Paul shifts the opera's focus towards its four protagonists and their timeless – and timely – struggles for love and peace in a world full of carnage and destruction.
