Music by Jonathan Dove
Libretto by April de Angelis
A Canadian première, Flight is the 1998 work that launched Jonathan Dove as one of today's most successful and popular composers.
Spicy and complex, with a scintillating score, Flight was inspired by the true story of a refugee who lived in an airport for 18 years. Surprisingly playful, sometimes risqué, Flight frequently soars into sheer poetry.
