with the singers of the World Premiere (Wuppertal Operahouse, Schillertheater NRW) recorded live in performance.
World Premiere: Wuppertal Operahouse, 15. November 1998

"A phantasmagorical soundworld of electronics, symphony orchestra and pounding beats which envelopes singers who effortlessly stretch from Pop to Classical virtuosity."

Dedicated to George Reinhart in memoriam

Regardless, GORMENGHAST combines traditional and contemporary musical forms better than any extended work since Phillip Glass and Robert Wilson's EINSTEIN ON THE BEACH.

Inspired by Mervyn Peake’s masterpiece of gothic fantasy, English novelist Duncan Fallowell wrote the libretto in S. etersburg, combining romance, comedy and futurism into an adventure of epic strangeness peopled by unforgettable characters.

It premiered at the Opernhaus Wuppertal on 15 November 1998. Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast Trilogy, on which the opera is based, is a Gothic tale recounting the rise of the evil Steerpike from a kitchen boy in Gormenghast castle to total domination of the castle and its aristocratic inhabitants
