Editorial Reviews

Irish composer, Roger Doyles first opera is based on the life and works of Giordano Bruno. Mystic magus, heretic priest, hermetic philosopher, spy and playwright, Giordano Bruno was one of the renaissances most brilliant and controversial men. Burned at the stake in 1600- after a nine-year trial by the Roman inquisition- Bruno envisioned a cosmos without a center, in nite galaxies and inhabited planets. His writings predated quantum theory by 350 years and his play Il Candelaio influenced numerous works by Shakespeare and Moliere. Giordano Bruno is the ideal subject for opera. A cultural superstar in his own time, his importance and relevance has continued to grow over the centuries. Heresy is written for 5 high voices including star male soprano Robert Crowe and 14 year old wunderkid, Aimee Banks. Heresy begins with Bruno teaching his system of magic memory to Henry III of France and includes scenes with his literary inventions and feminine ideals, Circe and Sophia. Further scenes focus on episodes at the court of Queen Elizabeth I, his trial before the Inquisition- presided over by his nemesis, Cardinal Robert Bellarmine- an hallucinatory scene in his cell the night before he is burned at the stake where he is visited by himself as a young boy, Circe and Sophia and James Joyce (a lifelong admirer of Brunos), his death by fire and his apotheosis among the cosmos.
