Synopsis
The story of Ashoka Maurya, a 3rd-century B.C. king of India and the only ruler to unify India until the 19th century A.D. The opera focuses on Ashoka's transformation from angry, isolated young conqueror to enlightened ruler. His revolutionary approach to government was based on a justice code whose central principles were universal tolerance, generosity, compassion, and nonaggression. Ashoka's Dream imagines events in the ruler's life, and in the lives of those close to him before, during, and after his transformation.
