Programme Note
Philip Glass A Madrigal Opera (1979)
The work, written for the Dutch theatre artist Rob Malasch, is conceived as an abstract music-theatre work which would then be "completed" by the various future directors. It is for this reason that, though the work has a clear emotional shape, it has no specific theatrical content.
