Received in the mail this Wednesday morning : Program book for 'The Trial' by Philip Glass
This Wednesday morning, I have received the program book published by Music Theatre Wales for the world première performance of Philip Glass' opera The Trial in London last month.
It is a 16 pages brochure unusually large (24 by 34 cm). It is bilingual (Welsh / English). It contains :
- the complete cast and crew,
- the synopsis, with a detailed description of the settings for all scenes,
- a 'profile of Philip Glass',
- an article on the relationship between Kafka and Glass,
- a few pictures of rehearsals and drawing of costumes,
- history of Music Theatre Wales and its involvement with Philip Glass' works,
- dates of the UK Tour 2014, with performances in 8 different locations.
The recording of the opera will be released by Orange Mountain Music.
