Summary
Documentary video opera investigates the roots of Christianity, Judaism and Islam through the story of Abraham. Prerecorded interviews with men and women of the faiths involved were shown on an array of multi channel screens, together with location footage shot in the Middle East, while an ensemble of instrumentalists and vocalists provided musical counterpoint and commentary, the speech patterns of the interviewees providing the starting point for much of the score.
