The Invention of Morel

March 17, 2018 - March 25, 2018

Stewart Copeland, co-founder and drummer of rock band The Police, teams up with librettist Jonathan Moore to adapt Adolfo Bioy Casares’ classic novel, “La Invención de Morel (The Invention of Morel).”

21CM Takeaway: Part sci-fi love story, part Kafka-esque social commentary, “The Invention of Morel” is a story that Jorge Luis Borges described as “perfect.” For Copeland and Moore, that means perfectly suitable for opera. Though the story gets dark at times, it’s one that Moore says he and Copeland nevertheless had “far too much fun” working on.
