Airline Icarus
Composer:Brian Current
Librettist:Anton Piatigorsky
Synopsis
Airline Icarus, by the composer Brian Current and the librettist Anton Piatigorsky, is a chamber opera about thoughts, fears and attractions among a group of passengers aboard an airplane that, as in the myth of Icarus, flies too close to the sun. Turbulence during the flight is linked to emotional turbulence within the characters through punchy, swirling and gratingly astringent music.
