Shadow Prophets

Tuesday, August 2, 2011, 10:00pm
San Leonardo De Siete Fuentes
Santulussurgiu, Oristano

squib-box presents Shadow Prophets, a new collaborative opera composed by Adam de la Cour, Neil Luck and Federico Reuben and featuring a libretto by Matthew Lee Knowles. Shadow Prophets was commissioned by Associazione Culturale Heuristic for the Miniere Sonore Festival 2011.

In a galaxy far, far away eastern dictators, western playboys and middle-class composers conflate in an alarming ejaculation of current affairs, hardcore modernism, slapstick, free jazz, and bad stand-up comedy. Expect anything…


The Visionary – Adam de la Cour
The Hero – Neil Luck
The Hand of God – Federico Reuben

Accompanied by an ensemble of musicians from the Cagliari conservatoire of music.

Libretto – Matthew Lee Knowles

Set and projections– Eszter Takacs
