Stefan and Lotte in Paradise

On September 20th 2012  we  premiered a digital opera, which I composed collaboratively with Brazilian composer Marcos Lucas to a libretto by Philip Goulding. The opera explores the last days in exile of Austrian Jewish writer Stefan Zweig and his wife Lotte Altmann. They were forced by the war to flee to Brazil, and ended their days in Petropolis, RJ, in 1942. The opera is produced by Mark Babych, and is a Psappha/Savvy co-production.
