Monster and Flight
Stage Works 1 November, 2016
A new translation of Dove’s Monster in the Maze premiered at Taiwan’s National Taichung Theater for two performances over the weekend (29/30 October 2016). The Chinese-Taiwanese version (titled 迷宮魔獸) represents the fourth translation of the work, with more on the way. The opera continues to storm on and has recently been shortlisted for a BASCA British Composer Awards at this year’s ceremony in the Amateur or Young Performer category. Flight, Dove’s breakthrough opera, will be produced in New York on 16/18/20 November 2016. Julliard Opera opens their season with the modern-day operatic comedy that tells the story of a refugee living in the airport and his interactions with different characters who find themselves delayed in the terminal. Inspired by the true-life story of an Iranian refugee who lived at Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris for 18 years. Tickets are available on the Julliard website.
