Ethel M. Barber Theater
Alongside earthly reality, another civilization exists parallel to it. Drillalia, the land of the Drill, is inhabited by numerous races, and its people throughout history have traveled to and from Earth, leaving signs of genius behind, while opening up their own world to destruction. We follow the initiation and adventures of a Drillalian prince, on a journey through time and space, in an effort to save his people. Boris Yukananov’s visionary modern opera for Stanislavsky ElectroTheatre in Moscow perfectly weds drama and music.
Presented in Russian with English subtitles, the running time is two hours and 30 minutes (with two 10 minute intermissions).
