Three Libretti--Ranging In Setting From Ancient Jerusalem To Pre-Apocalyptic London--From An Acclaimed PoetThis volume of libretti marks new work--and new terrain--for James Fenton. Commissioned by companies in New York and England, these musical pieces make the most of the poet's poignant, witty, and characteristically lyrical verse. Whether evoking modern-day London on the edge of apocalypse in The Love Bomb, a timeless land beyond the moon in this version of Salman Rushdie's children's novel" Haroun and the Sea of Stories, or ancient Jerusalem in his stirring oratorio "The Fall of Jerusalem, which was composed to mark the millennium, Fenton's lucid storytelling and stylish wordplay bring these pieces vividly to life--with equal power in performance or on the page."Haroun and the Sea of Stories was commissioned by the New York City Opera and is scheduled to receive its premiere at Lincoln Center in September 2003.
