by fate meets the the prime minister and hopes for personal love. But this is not to be a happy ending. The leader of the have-not’s takes this perfect opportunity to assassinate the PM.
When the attempt fails, the blame falls on Germain and leads him to his imprisonment and eventual death.
GERMAIN, A Dreamer (Lyric Baritone)
This is not to say, ‘Germain’ was slated – at conception – to be any race-specific opera. To quite the contrary, I wanted to completely push it to the other end of the spectrum. I wanted an opera where the production could be presented in almost any way as the cast, the times, or director chose to do it.
Hopefully this opera is wide open for interpretation. It contains pure political prototypes that seem to enter the public consciousness over and over again in the media: the rich apathetic minority, the poor resentful majority, the pacifist, the innocent victim, the abuser of power, the ambitious all-or- nothing dissident, the political pawn, the scorned women.
Unfortunately, people need to be told exactly what is happening in an unfamiliar work as this.
For you, who have chosen to take on the challenge to present it, I invite you to be my collaborators – please, not my servants.
James Nathaniel Holland is an American classical music composer of operas, symphonies, ballets, songs, and other musical concertworks that incorporate a unique, eclectic, blend of romantic, classical, world and jazz styles.
