Socrates has been loved by audiences and critics, and at this moment is being presented to major theaters. You do not need to be involved in or love opera to love Socrates, it’s an opera designed and written for everybody! All you need to appreciate this opera is an interest in the human race.
musical background is in opera. Considering the world we live
in, I have always been fascinated by people like Socrates, Jesus
Christ, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Four different times, four
different characters, but each of these men died for "saying it like it
is", and they paid the ultimate price: death. Nothing new, really.
Think about it, think out of the box. The only difference between these
four periods of time and today’s world is the internet. Our
mentalities, some of us humans, still haven’t learned to “judge by the
character”. This is one of the reasons people in and out of the music
world feel attracted to "Socrates, the Opera".
I was recently commissioned to compose a 30-minute Symphonic-Choral version of Socrates the Musical Drama. The purpose of this commission was to introduce the opera to the
general public, giving them an idea of the intensity and drama of the
2-hour complete opera. I finished the Socrates Symphony a few months
ago, but recently have decided to start adding and taking out certain
elements in order to increase the levels of intensity and drama.
Attending one of my "lectures-performances" of Socrates might change
the way you look at this world and many things around you.
