Romulus world premiere in 2007

Composer Louis Karchin has announced that a recording of his opera Romulus will be released sometime next year by Naxos.  AOP premiered Romulus at the Peter B. Lewis Theater at the Guggenheim in 2007. Romulus is a one-act opera based on an English Translation by Barnett Shaw of a play by Alexandre Dumas, pèr. In the work, two confirmed bachelors, Celestus and Frantz, have a very comfortable living in their small cottage home in 19th Century Austria. Genially cared for by Celestus’ sister Martha and able to dedicate themselves entirely to their studies of astronomy and philosophy, their lives are simple and perfect –until a baby arrives in a basket.
