Excerpt from the opera synopsis and its final scene:

Tableau 11: The Twilight Hour
The Old Man and Badi’at with the golden hoopoe feather in her hand, are sitting quietly high on their tower and watching the camel rider grow smaller and smaller until at last he vanishes in the evening light.

© Hans Werner Henze

Please note that there is an ensemble work with the title L'heure bleue which is not related to the orchestral work.
