Little Nemo in Slumberland
Composer:Daron Aric Hagen
Librettist:J.D. McClatchy
The opera recounts the adventures of a boy named Nemo over the course of two nights. Family visitors and the neighbor's little girl are transformed in his dreams into fantastic characters, all of them involved in Nemo's quest to save Slumberland from Emperor Sol, who wants it to be bright, all night and all day. Nemo encounters a crystal enchantress, menacing giants, the impish Flip, the dottering Dr. Pill, along with King Morpheus and his lovely daughter. Nemo's adventures along the way include a floating bed and a balloon ride, dizzying changes of scale and a palace that turns upside down. As they all realize at the opera's end: “We need a world where things are different. / We need a world we can't control, / where nothing is what it seems. / We need a world of dreams.”
