An Interview with Mohammed Fairouz
We're thrilled to be producing the World Premiere of Mohammed Fairouz’s chamber opera Sumeida’s Song in PROTOTYPE. This young composer has had an amazing year as he has unveiled multiple works --instrumental and vocal, chamber and full orchestra-- garnering praise from around the world as one of the most in-demand composers of his generation. Both sweeping in philosophical and political scope and microcosmic in familial landscape, Sumeida's Song elegantly and poignantly lays bare the clash of old traditions and new ways in our modern times. We couldn't be more proud to be premiering Mohammed's first opera in our inaugural festival.
