Seven Angels  

Seven Angels $20.86 ex GST
$22.95 inc GST

Seven angels have fallen through space and time for so long, they have forgotten why. Coming to rest on a desert landscape, they imagine the creation of a legendary garden that once flourished there and its destruction from greed and neglect. Inspired by Paradise Lost,  Seven Angels interprets the themes of John Milton’s masterpiece for a modern audience facing up to the urgent challenges of a changing climate and ever-depleting resources.

This is the long-awaited first opera from Luke Bedford featuring the libretto of award-winning poet Glyn Maxwell.
