First Performance: 

April 26, 2012 - Sergii Gorkusha, guitarist

A technically-demanding solo guitar work - embedded in an intense psycho-drama of disillusionment and alienation. The guitarist is frequently called-upon to speak (rhythmically or freely) and there is a brief passage of singing. This micro-opera is intended to be staged, and it is strongly recommended that the guitarist collaborate with an adventurous drama coach.
