Ganymede 5 is a far future science fiction drama where a space colony views terrestrial nature as pornographic and its existence a threat to the fascist utopian society. The opera will be developed with the cast, so an interest in workshopping/experimenting new material is important. Accordingly, specific voice types are flexible, we will write with you in mind.
ROLE 1: tenor or high baritone to play various characters (one as a main role, and some secondary characters)
ROLE 2: soprano (anytype) to play various characters (one as a main role, and some secondary characters)
ROLE 3: soprano (anytype) to play various characters (one as a main role, and some secondary characters)
ROLE 4: soprano (anytype) to play various characters (one as a main role, and some secondary characters)
