Editorial Reviews

Whether you call it shell shock or post-traumatic stress disorder, war creates serious psychological wounds. A hundred years after the outbreak of the Great War, Belgian composer Nicolas Lens and Australian author and musician Nick Cave have written a new opera on this theme. In twelve poems or canti, they evoke the anonymous protagonist of the war in a highly personal and fluent style: soldiers, mothers, orphans, prisoners etc. The testimonies of these individual characters, with whom everyone can identify, make the universal call for a more humane and peaceful world.
